Titanium dioxide (TiO2 ) is a white solid inorganic substance that is thermally stable, non-flammable, poorly soluble, and not classified as hazardous according to the United Nations’ (UN) Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelingof Chemicals (GHS)
Titanium dioxide has been used for many years (ca. 90 years) in a vast range of industrial and consumer goods including paints, coatings, adhesives, paper and paperboard, plastics and rubber, printing inks, coated fabrics and textiles, catalyst systems, ceramics, floor coverings, roofing materials, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, water treatment agents, food colorants and in automotive products, etc …
As a pigment, TiO2 has excellent light-scattering properties and is used in a variety of applications that require white opacity and brightness. It absorbs UV light. When TiO2 pigment is incorporated in a polymer, it minimizes degradation of the system (embrittlement, fading and cracking). Surface treating of the TiO2 can further improve this property. When used in paint or coating system, this effect ensures the longevity of the paint and the continued protection of the substrate. The use of light colored paints for interior applications provides an impression of openness and “space”. In addition, the high “luminosity” that comes from light colored paints reduces the energy needed to light the interior of buildings when compared to darker colors.
In exterior applications the coolness conferred by TiO2 colored surfaces leads to considerable energy savings in warm and tropical area by light reflectance thus reducing the need for air-conditioning. TiO2 as a nanomaterial (ultrafine) appears transparent whilst still providing UV light absorption. Surface treatments allow dispersion in different media and efficient absorption of UV energy (e.g. in applications like sunscreens and light stabilization for wood coatings). When untreated, it can be used to decompose environmental pollutants by photocatalysis. TiO2 as a nanomaterial (ultrafine) is used for example as a DeNOx catalyst support in exhaust gas systems in cars, trucks and power plants, thus minimizing their environmental impact.
