VM – TITANIA (TiO2 Replacement)


Titania is a white pigment opacifier which is produced by inhouse developed
process, thanks to our R&D. It has ultrafine particle size and even particle shapes
which act as a spacer and improves the scaterring properties of TiO2 pigment,
hence increasing the efficiency of white pigment and lowering the overall pigment
cost. It is fluffy powder with high gloss, obtained by a highly complex production
process.
This newly developed opacifier can be used in a number of applications as a
partial replacement of white pigment. It is dispersible in all medium and provide
whiteness and brightness to the product.
