Titanium Dioxide Pigment Type
R-2 (PN-EN ISO 591-1:2002)
II (ASTM D476-00)
White powder with the crystallographic form of rutile, non-toxic, non-flammable and chemically inactive. Surface treated with aluminium compounds (in amount of 3% as Al2O3) and modified with hydrophilic organic compounds.
TYTANPOL® R-001 has very good optical properties (high level of gloss, low level of gloss haze, very good lightening power and opacity), is easily dispersed and durable to weathering conditions.
