HITOX (high grade titanium dioxide) is a high quality, cost-effective, beige and gray coloured rutile titanium dioxide pigments produced by TOR Minerals. Most titanium dioxide is pure white, but HITOX demonstrates that whiteness is not a pre-requisite for effectiveness in colour formulations.
In products which require opacity and colour i.e. non-white paints, Hitox pigments can reduce the amount of expensive organic & inorganic pigments as well as white TiO2. Depending on the finished colour desired, HITOX can replace from 15-100% of white TiO2, and may also allow the reduction of coloured organic and inorganic pigments, achieving considerable savings.
Applications: Hitox STD (Beige) – Can be used in a broad range of Paint and Coatings applications, including Architectural, Coil Backers, Powder, Container, Wood, Traffic, Primers, Adhesive & Sealants and Roof Coatings – basically all non-white applications where colour is required.
Hitox Gray (Grey) – Well suited for use in gray primers, powder coatings and other decorative and industrial paints. In addition to cost savings, HITOX gray can eliminate or reduce the use of black pigments which are typically difficult to incorporate due to floatation problems.
Product Range: Hitox® Buff – Beige
Hitox® Gray – Grey
TIOPREM BEIGE & GRAY are high performance TiO2. Beige & Gray Coloured Hybrid Pigments produced by Tor Minerals. TIOPREM offers excellent Heat Stability to over 500°F / 260°C, making it suitable for use in High Temperature resins like HDPE, PP, PA, ABS and PC and Coatings. Typical applications are Plastic Master Batch, Colour Concentrates and Liquid Colour. Most titanium dioxide is pure white, but HITOX demonstrates that whiteness is not a pre-requisite for effectiveness in colour formulations. TIOPREM exhibits good opacity and is cost-effective in formulation, partially replacing more expensive heat stable pigments as well as white Titanium Dioxide.
In products which require opacity and colour TIOPREM pigments can reduce the loading of the more expensive organic & inorganic pigments as well as white TiO2. Depending on the finished colour desired, TIOPREM can replace from 15-100% of white TiO2, and may also allow the reduction of coloured organic and inorganic pigments, achieving considerable savings.
Applications: Plastics & High-Temperature Coatings
Product Range: Tioprem® Buff – Beige
Tioprem® Gray – Grey
Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium(IV) oxide or titania, is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium, chemical formula TiO2. Titanium dioxide is the most widely used white pigment because of its brightness and very high refractive index. TiO2 is also an effective opacifier in powder form, where it is employed as a pigment to provide whiteness and opacity to products such as paints, coatings, plastics and inks.
