International. The Chemours Company introduced a new low-abrasion grade Ti-Pure titanium dioxide pigment, specifically designed to improve the formulation and performance of printing inks.
The unveiling of this new product took place during Chinacoat 2019, one of the largest global coatings industry events globally held this week in Shanghai, China.
This new ti-Pure brand pigment grade (TS-4657) is chloride-processed and specifically designed to be less abrasive than other TiO2 chloride offerings. Historically, the pigments produced by the chloride process had an abrasion level too high for the ink market, which caused excessive wear on printing plates.
This new special grade of pigment is the ideal choice for creating water-based inks and solvents used in flexographic, digital and gravure printing of labels and packaging. The use of the chloride process produces a whiter and brighter pigment than the sulfate process, allowing the formulation of inks with greater opacity in a wider range of colors.
Ti-Pure TS-4657 can be mixed with other pigments, providing customers with maximum flexibility and excellent cost-performance ratio. This new ink grade offering helps customers diversify their pigment supply so their growth doesn't have to be compromised by a lack of supply.
