  • Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium(IV) oxide or titania, is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium, chemical formula TiO2. When used as a pigment, it is called titanium white, Pigment White 6, or CI 77891. Titanium dioxide is a colorless solid at room temperature, melts at 1830 oC, and boils between 2500 and 3000 oC.
  • Titanium dioxide occurs in four forms:
    rutile, a tetragonal mineral usually of prismatic habit, often twinned.
    anatase or octahedrite, a tetragonal mineral of dipyramidal habit;
    brookite, an orthorrhombic mineral. Both anatase and bookite are relatively rare minerals;Titanium dioxide (B) or Tio2, a monoclinic mineral.
  • Titanium dioxide occurrences in nature are never pure; it is found with contaminant metals such as iron. The oxides can be mined and serve as a source for commercial titanium. The metal can also be mined from other minerals such as ilmenite or leucoxene ores, or one of the purest forms, rutile beach sand.
  • In spite of being colourless in the massive state titanium dioxide is an extremely effective white pigment when it is finely divided. TiO2 absorbs almost no incident light in the visible region of the spectrum. The light is either transmitted and refracted through the crystal or reflected at the interfaces.
  • The oldest production process for titanium dioxide is the sulfate process. The major difference between the chloride and the chloride-ilmenite process is the process feed stock. The two main titanium bearing minerals sources that are used as feedstock in the production of titanium dioxide are ilmenite and rutile. The most abundant titanium bearing mineral is ilmenite and is comprised of approximately 43 to 65 percent titanium dioxide.
  • As a semiconductor, TiO2 functions by having a large band gap, which can be described as an energy threshold that electrons must obtain in order to flow through a material. The band gap is located between the filled valence band, and the higher energy conduction band. The magnitude between the electronically occupied valence band and the largely unpopulated conduction band determines both the extent of thermal population of the conduction band and the wavelength sensitivity of the semiconductor to irradiation.
  • Titanium dioxide is a well-known photocatalyst for water and air treatment as well as for catalytic production of gases. The general scheme for the photocatalytic destruction of organics begins with its excitation by suprabandgap photons, and continues through redox reactions where OH radicals, formed on the photocatalyst surface, play a major role.
  • More than 50 percent of the titanium dioxide produced is used in paints, varnishes and lacquer. In paints, titanium dioxide is used primarily to whiten and opacify polymeric binder systems. Even medium to deep shades usually contain some titanium dioxide. It also is used in coatings where exterior durability is needed.
  • More than 25 percent of the titanium dioxide produced is used in paper and paperboard. The paper industry uses titanium dioxide in two different applications: as a direct addition to whiten and opacify the paper stock, and in the manufacture of coatings that are applied to the paper product. Titanium dioxide also is used in the manufacture of many other products including printing inks, rubber, floor coverings, ceramics, food and pharmaceuticals.
  • The plastics market for Ti02 grew by 5-6% in the 1990s. The plastics market, which uses Ti02 as pigments, opacifiers and UV stabilisers in polyethylene, polypropylene and PVC, is also expected to show by 2007 the highest growth rate, though by a lower average of 2.9%. The Economics of Titanium Minerals and Pigments predicts that with an average growth of 3.5% per year, the Asia-Pacific market will be stronger than the worldwide average.
  • Kemira's only production plant for titanium dioxide pigments is at Meri-Pori near Mantyluoto harbor. More than 95 percent of the titanium dioxide made at the plant is exported. Leading ink manufacturers worldwidee now use Kemira pigments specially in products intended for coating various special packaging types such as drink cans.
  • China is the world’s fastest-growing titanium dioxide market and the second largest country for total titanium dioxide consumption. It is currently consuming approximately 650,000 tonnes per year of titanium, and is a net importer of titanium dioxide. In line with the anticipated massive expansion in titanium dioxide consumption, DuPont recently announced plans for a world-class titanium dioxide plant for the city of Donying in China , to have an annual capacity of 200,000 tons. DuPont’s total investment will exceed US$1 billion.
