Lack of negative impact of titanium dioxide on the human body and very low content of heavy metals allow for meeting the most rigorous requirements imposed on pigments.
These requirements mainly concern adequately low content of heavy metals, which is particularly important in the aspect of application of pigments for production of toys, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, products being in direct contact with food or directly to the food.
Meeting of these requirements is not a greater problem for the titanium dioxide manufacturers. This results from the fact that – in order to obtain titanium dioxide of optimum optical properties – extreme chemical purity is to be ensured to it. In case of application of titanium dioxide directly to food or pharmaceuticals also specific sanitary requirements are to be additionally met.
