Since several years, Caldic has been cooperating with CHTi, the second largest Chinese producer of Titanium Dioxide (TiO₂). Thanks to CHTi’s production capacity and R&D skills, combined with our value-added services, we can offer the best TiO₂ quality and expertise. This is how we have ultimately become an important and reliable full-service distributor of TiO₂ in Europe.

What is Titanium Dioxide (TiO₂)?

Titanium Dioxide is one of the most used materials for Coatings, Plastics and Decor Paper. Titanium dioxide is the naturally occurring oxide of titanium, and its chemical formula is TiO₂. When used as a pigment, it is called titanium white, Pigment White 6 (PW6), or CI 77891. Generally, it is sourced from ilmenite (black mineral to produce white pigment), rutile and anatase. 

The main use of titanium dioxide (TiO₂) is as a white powder pigment because of its brightness and very high refractive index. This means that relatively low levels of the pigment are required to achieve a white opaque coating. One of the major advantages for titanium dioxide is its resistance to discoloration under ultraviolet (UV) light in exposed applications.

Why choose Caldic as your titanium dioxide partner?

Fact is that there are many TiO₂ producers and a huge number of distributors, traders and agents around. However, if you want to secure stock services or when you need custom packaging services, most producers cannot answer specific or tailored requests, or guarantee a steady TiO₂ supply. 

Caldic and CHTi are sharing their vision of growth in a competitive world. Together we have proven to succeed in overcoming many obstacles and guarantee our customers the best service, today and tomorrow. If you are looking for a reliable source and constant supply of titanium dioxide, we can be your partner for the long term.
