Titanium Dioxide is one of the most significant white pigments in the world and is used, among other things, in paints and varnishes, 3D printing, printing inks, plastics, rubber, linoleum, artificial fibres, paper, glass, enamel, ceramics and many other day-to-day products.
Globally, these products are in high demand for the production of aeroplanes, rockets and space applications.
Furthermore, titanium metal is increasingly used in advanced engineering applications, spectacle frames, jewellery, bicycle frames and sporting goods. Its general inertness means it is being used in prosthetic surgery including hip replacements, spinal implants, dentistry and in pacemakers.
Paints and coatings, plastics / paper
• Opaque, white and bright High refractive index (refracts * reflects white light) UV protection
• Absorbs UV light energy (transfers to heat) – prevents fading, peeling and cracking
• Safe for use in foods, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals
Welding flux agent
Ship building and fabrication
Important constituent of welding to shape, hold and protect the weld pool from atmospheric conditions
Dye-sensitive solar cells, arsenic removal in water treatment, cancer treatment and noise absorption
Significant research into nanotechnology shows promising new applications for titanium dioxide
Aircraft engines and airframes, military equipment, chemical processing and desalination plants, medical and sporting equipment
• High strength to weight ratio
• Strong as steel but 45% lighter, twice the strength of aluminium which provides an important fuel efficiency benefit in aerospace applications
• Corrosion resistant
• Forms and inert protective oxide coating self-repairs when mechanically damaged
