Cristal is Brazil’s only TiO2 pigment producer and the second largest worldwide. This inorganic white powder is safe to use to add color, brightness and opacity to a huge range of widely used products such as paint, plastics, paper, rubber, ceramics, among others.
In the case of paint, for example, adding TiO2 to formulas boosts coverage, gloss and durability to make modern paint products that are more efficient and easier to apply while having less impact on the environment.
TiO2 adds coverage power and extra shine to plastic and rubber products. Its range of applications extends to paper, ceramics, glass, leather, synthetic fibers and color formulations for artistic paints.
Our titanium dioxide pigment is marketed under the TiONA® trademark.
Pigmentos de TiO2
TiONA® 242 is a rutile titanium dioxide produced by the sulfate process with bluish subtonality, produced at the Cristal plant in Bahia, Brazil. It has been developed with a high performance organic treatment to provide excellent dispersibility in plastic polymers. It is recommended for use in masterbatches and other applications in plastics where durability is not an essential factor.
