TiO2 Products Can Be Found in Almost Every Industry

Our TiO2 pigment goes into hundreds of articles and surfaces, – from mobile devices to the paint on the wall. Magazine covers, window frames, cars, cosmetics, and most other common place items – that are white or pastel colored contain titanium dioxide. TiO2 also enhances the brilliance of colors.


KRONOS offers an extensive portfolio of dry pigments and pigment slurries for the paint and coatings industry. Easy dispersion, highest opacity, tinting strength, and excellent gloss development are just a few of the features our TiO2 pigments provide. KRONOS pigments for coatings cover the full array of applications from high-performance exterior coatings to dead-matt indoor emulsion paints in waterborne, solvent based, or solvent-free systems.

Other engineering plastics


High whiteness, excellent opacity, as well as good retention behavior in paper pulp, are key properties of the KRONOS pigments for paper applications. The use of optical brighteners in combination with our anatase pigments subsequently enhances the whiteness and the bluish tone of the resulting paper and paper coatings. For paper laminates, KRONOS offers a tailor-made rutile product that shows excellent UV stability and high yellowing resistance.

White TiO2 pigments are increasingly used in various printing technologies and applications, especially in the field of solvent-based and waterborne gravure, flexographic, and digital printing inks. The low abrasion behavior and excellent opacity of optimized KRONOS ink grades produced by the sulfate process are key attributes for various printing inks.

KRONOS’ forward-thinking attitude has led to a range of innovative products, such as the novel white aqueous pigment concentrate for digital printing, which provides an excellent storage stability based on anti-settlement properties paired with superior opacity and highest whiteness properties.
