Jochum Beetsma & Jochum Beetsma – Jun 16, 2017

TiO2 Optimization StrategiesTitanium dioxide (TiO2) is the most suited white pigment, to give a coating - whiteness and hiding power. This is because, it does not absorb visible light and it has a high refractive index.

However, the pigment is expensive, especially when volume prices of systems are used. But, practice shows that the best cost / performance ratio can be obtained, if the system is studied well and checked whether, TiOparticles in your system are:

 » Separated from each other
 » Stabilized sufficiently against flocculation
 » Distributed well
 » And more…

Dear Mr/Mrs Pisit, Yes, the concept can be applied to TiO2 particles in any system, including plastics. My experience is that especially in plastics a lot of money is thrown away because separation of pigment particles is far from perfect. This implies that full colour strength of expensive pigment is not obtained. Greetings, Jochum Beetsma.
