Titanium dioxide (Tio2), also known as titanium oxide (IV) or titanium dioxide, is a natural titanium oxide, the chemical formula of TiO2.
When used as a pigment, it is called white titanium, pigment white.
It is usually obtained from ilmenite, rutile and anatase.
It has a very wide range of applications, including paints, sunscreen and food coloring.
When used as a food coloring, it is known as E-171.
The most important applications are paints and varnishes, as well as paper and plastics, which account for about 80% of the global consumption of titanium dioxide. Other pigmented applications, such as printing inks, fibers, rubber, cosmetic products and food products, account for another 8%. The rest is used in other areas, for example, for the production of technical pure titanium, glass ceramics, electroceramics, metal patins, catalysts, electrical conductors and chemical intermediates.
Titanium dioxide is the most widely used white pigment due to its brightness and very high refractive index.
Approximately 4.6 million tons of pigmented TiO2 are used annually worldwide, and this amount is expected to increase as usage increases.
Titanium dioxide is actively used as a pigment to impart whiteness and opacity to products such as paints, coatings, plastics, paper, inks, food, medicine, and also in most toothpastes.
In cosmetics and skin care products, titanium dioxide is used as a pigment for sunscreen and a thickener.
Titanium dioxide is widely used in plastic as a white pigment, and also because of its UV-resistant properties, where the powder scatters light.
