PRLog - Dec. 5, 2011 - SOUTHLAKE, Texas -- Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is the most widely used white pigment because of its brightness and very high refractive index, which it’s surpassed only by a few other materials. TiO2 is an effective hiding pigment in powder form, where it provides whiteness and opacity. Approximately 4 million tons of TiO2 are consumed annually worldwide for pigment applications.
The major consuming industries for TiO2 pigments are mature sectors in the developed world such as plastics, surface coatings, paper and paperboard. Therefore, consumption of TiO2 tends to parallel general economic trends. Paint and coating applications account for the largest world share, with plastics and paper accounting for most of the rest.
