We Are Brighter together

KRONOS is a leading global producer and marketer of value-added titanium dioxide pigments, or TiO2, a base industrial product used in a wide range of applications. We take pride in making the world brighter with the most effective whitening agent in the world – titanium dioxide (TiO2).

TiO2 is a white pigment playing a key role in the production of paints and coatings, plastics, papers, fibers as well as in specialties such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, glass, and ceramics.

It has the highest opacity of all white pigments due to its exceptionally high refractive index and subsequent high light-scattering power.

Applications using TiO2 are characterized by superior whiteness and brightness, a neutral tone, outstanding dispersibility and excellent tint reduction in colored media.

TiO2 is What We Do

Titanium dioxide is an achromatic, inorganic colorant with a very high refractive index. It has an exceptionally high reflectance and displays little or no absorption in the wavelength range of visible light. More than 90% of standardized color palettes contain TiO2 pigment due to its superior hiding power. TiO2 pigments are non-toxic and easy to disperse. It is resistant to high temperatures, as well as prevailing atmospheric influences. TiO2 pigments are insoluble in water, organic solvents, alkalis, and most inorganic acids. There are no adequate substitutes for TiO2 pigments in most applications.

Our Products and Applications

Naturally occurring oxide

Titanium dioxide is made from natural materials from the earth. It has the highest refractive index of any known material, even the diamond. It provides maximum whiteness and opacity.

Chloride & sulfate processes

We produce two types of TiO2: rutile pigments by the sulfate or the chloride process and anatase pigments by the sulfate process only.

Titanium dioxide

We carefully extract TiO2 out of naturally occurring ores and refine the TiO2 into a uniform particle size. When dry it resembles powder.

Applications

Titanium dioxide is an essential component in many important applications, such as coatings, plastics, paper, laminates and inks.
