Titanium dioxide, also known as titanium oxide or titania, is the naturally occuring oxide of titanium,chemical formula TiO2. When used as a pigment, it is called titanium white,Pigment white. Generally it is sourced from ilmenite, tutile and anatase. It has a wide range of applications, from paint to sunscreen to food coloring.
R838 is produced by sulfate process, It is a Rutile TiO2 pigment which is Inorganic Si, Al surface coating, organic surface treating. Has optical properties of partial blue phase, good whiteness，good optical properties and hiding power, good durability and dispersion etc.
