R-996 TiO2 Pigment
R-996 is a specific type of titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment that has undergone treatment with zirconia and alumina using the sulfate process. Titanium dioxide is a widely used white pigment in various applications, including paints, coatings, plastics, and paper.
The sulfate process is one of the methods used to produce titanium dioxide. In this process, natural rutile or ilmenite is reacted with sulfuric acid, resulting in the formation of titanium dioxide with a certain crystalline structure. The addition of zirconia and alumina may improve certain properties of the pigment, making it suitable for outdoor applications and providing superior paint gloss.
Some of the potential advantages of using a pigment like R-996, with zirconia and alumina treatment, may include:
1. Outdoor Durability: The specific treatment and crystalline structure may enhance the pigment's resistance to weathering, UV degradation, and other environmental factors, making it suitable for long-term outdoor exposure without significant color fading or degradation.
2. Superior Paint Gloss: The treated pigment may contribute to a smoother and more reflective surface in paints and coatings, resulting in a higher gloss finish, which is desirable in certain applications.
3. Opacity and Whiteness: Titanium dioxide is known for its excellent opacity and high whiteness, which are crucial factors in paint formulations and other applications where a bright, white appearance is desired.
4. Color Stability: The treated pigment may offer improved color stability, ensuring that the paint retains its intended color over time.
