Lomon Billions Tio2

Lomon Billions TiO₂ pigment experts will be at the Middle East Coatings Show (MECS) at the World Trade Centre in Dubai from February 26-28, stand K03a, located at the entrance to Hall 5.

High-performance TiO2 Pigments

We’re excited to be exhibiting at the MECS in Dubai again,” says Julie Reid, Marketing Director. “We’ll be promoting our range of high-performance LOMON® and BILLIONS® TiO2 pigments for all major coatings and inks applications including one of our most popular pigments, LOMON®R-996 pigment, an excellent all-rounder for interior and exterior coatings, trusted by coatings formulators worldwide, and our specialist BILLIONS®TR52 pigment for printing inks.

The Lomon Billions TiO2 pigment experts will also be available at MECS 2019 to share information about the company’s latest innovation in chloride TiO2 pigments, BILLIONS®BLR-895 pigment, developed through customer consultation at the company’s 12,000m2 technology center in China, and manufactured using the chloride process.

BLR-895 pigment is our new durable chloride TiO2 pigment,” says Julie. “It has excellent dispersion, opacity, and gloss, and delivers brilliant whiteness with a clean blue tone making it suitable for an extensive range of architectural and industrial coatings.

Our tests show that BLR-895 pigment can deliver a brighter bluer white when compared with several competitive chloride TiO2 pigments including internationally recognized brands, and thanks to its inorganic surface coating it has outstanding dispersion performance.

It disperses quickly and easily into coatings formulations helping to achieve efficient production and high-quality coatings. We’re delighted that our new pigment has already been approved and used by leading global coatings producers.

Investment in Two New Chloride TiO2 Pigment Manufacturing Lines

Lomon Billions has been manufacturing high-performance TiO2 pigments for over 30 years. It is currently the world’s 4th largest TiO2 pigment manufacturer, No. 1 in Asia, and growing fast. New $millions investment at Lomon Billions will expand the company’s chloride TiO2 pigment manufacturing capacity in 2019.

In February 2018, the board of directors at Lomon Billions approved a RMB1.8billion (~US$ 285million) investment in additional chloride titanium dioxide pigment production capacity at its chloride production site in Jiaozuo, Henan Province, China.

Two new chloride TiO2 pigment manufacturing lines are under construction that will provide an additional annual chloride TiO2 pigment manufacturing capacity of around 200,000 tons. Commercial production from the new lines will begin in 2019.

Strengthening Global Competitiveness

This investment in additional chloride capacity at Jiaozuo will allow Lomon Billions to increase its chloride TiO2 pigment portfolio to manufacture more high-performance chloride TiO2 pigments for a wider range of applications” said Bruce Griffin, senior vice president for strategic development. “It will help strengthen our global competitiveness.”

The company is currently developing new chloride TiO2 chloride pigments at its 12,000m2 technology center and chloride manufacturing facility in Jiaozuo that will be launched when its additional chloride manufacturing lines are available.
