Plastic: titanium white powder in plastic products, in addition to its high hiding power, high achromatic power and its pigment properties, it can also improve the heat resistance, light resistance, weather resistance of plastic products, so that plastic products are free Affected by UV light, improving the mechanical and electrical properties of plastic products.


3. Paper: paper using titanium dioxide, whiteness, high strength, shiny, thin and smooth, does not penetrate when printing, under the same conditions, opacity is 10 times higher than calcium carbonate, talcum powder, weight can also be reduced 15% to 30%.

1. High whiteness and strong hiding power.


2. Hydrophilic and lipophilic products It overcomes the defects that ordinary titanium dioxide is not easy to disperse and precipitate easily in its dispersion system, and significantly improves its dispersibility and precipitation resistance, making your products more stable and satisfactory.


3. Strong weather resistance.


4. It has good compatibility with other raw materials of cosmetics.
