Titan R878 with TiO2 in fact, is a white powder that is insoluble in water and diluted organic and mineral Acids, Bases and other organic solvents. This matter because of the ability of coating, bleaching and very proper stability that it has, is used as a white pigment.
What is Titan R878 ?
First time white Titanium at last days of year 1800 is derived from Ilmenite Ore in laboratory. In nature this matter usually is found as three Anatase, rutile, brookite forms, that crystal base compounds in all these three, are octagon sides, and the differences in these phases are because the ways of arrangement in these octagon sides.
Advantages and properties of Titan R878 .
This uninflammable mineral matter has very convenient heat stability also is resistant to solvents that are used in paints. It also has great chemical stability and when they be in exposure of UV, extremely absorb it, in other way cause to create protective effect against UV rays. As the other property of that can be mentioned to reduction of decomposition system power while combining with polymer.
Application of Titan R878 .
This matter according to advantages and properties that it has, is used to produce inside and outside surfaces colors, as semiconductive, to electronic equipment production, to prepare medicant and packing medicant, as stabilizer pigment in sunscreen, to produce lipstick and makeup products, half-gloss decorative paints production, as dielectric in capacitors, to decrease environmental Nitrogen oxides diffusion and etc.
Use and maintenance conditions of Titan R878 .
In Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), this matter is categorized as safe and non-toxic material but in long time obtained particles from their displacement cause respiratory diseases so, is recommended to use proper mask, gloves, glasses, hat and safety clothes while prolonged contact.
