R-2 (PN-EN ISO 591)
II (ASTM D-476)
A white fine-milled powder with a rutile crystallographic structure, nontoxic, non-flammable and chemically inactive. Subjected to surface treatment with aluminium compounds and modified with hydrophilic organic compounds.
TYTANPOL® R-001 has very good optical properties (a high brightening and hiding power , and gives a high gloss to coatings while haze of gloss remains low), is easily dispersible and weather resistant.
TYTANPOL® R-001 is widely used and especially recommended for indoor paints, both water and solvent borne (industrial, construction, decorative), air-drying enamels, stoving enamels, high-solid paints, “can coatings” paints, paints for wood, road marking paints and high-gloss printing inks.
It may also be used effectively for powder coatings, “coil coatings” , pigmenting plastics (flexible PVC, plastisols, polyolefines, unsaturated polyesters, polyester gel coats, vinyl floor lining, linoleum, sealing compounds, polyurethanes, polystyrenes), as well as in the production of pigment concentrates and for tinting some synthetic fibres. This pigment can be used in the paper industry (pulp, paper coatings, wallpapers) and in the leather industry.
Safety of use
TYTANPOL® R-001 is safe to transport, use and disposal. The Safety Data Sheet provides detailed information on how to use our pigments safely.
This pigment is suitable for use in products intended for direct contact with food.
This pigment type is labelled with the NSF® mark (Certificate No 14) as a pigment approved for plastic pipes and related materials that are in direct contact with potable water.
Packaging and Transport
TYTANPOL® R-001 is packed into:
- paper valve bags, 25 kg each,
- flexible bulk containers, the so-called big-bags, 500 kg or 1000 kg each,
- road tankers,
- at the customer’s request, also other packaging, e.g. polyethylene bags or
water soluble paper bags.
TYTANPOL® R-001 should be transported in covered means of transport, pursuant to the binding regulations, which protect the product against the action of water, precipitation, direct sunlight and damage to the packaging.
The number of layers of bags stacked flat should not exceed twenty-four.
The number of bags stacked flat on the pallet, which varies depending on the pallet dimensions, should not exceed eleven. If the product is transported in units formed on pallets, it is allowed to stack two layers at the most.
The product may also be transported in bulk in means of transport assigned for carrying dusty goods after it has been agreed in writing between the consignee and producer in conditions which guarantee the product quality at least as effectively as the packaging.
TYTANPOL ® R-001 pigment is not classified as a dangerous substance, further to the UN Orange Book and international transportation codes, e.g. RID (rail transport), ADR (road transport) and IMDG (maritime transport).
If the product is transported in the road means of transport belonging to the consignee or a carrier acting at the direct order of the consignee, the responsibility for any deterioration of the product shall be borne by the customer or the carrier.
Titanium white should be kept in original undamaged packaging, in clean and dry storage buildings and protected against the influence of weather conditions (solar radiation, precipitation).
The number of layers of bags stacked flat should not exceed twenty-four. If the product is stored in units formed on pallets, it is allowed to stack three pallets at the most.
The pigment may be stored in bulk after it has been agreed in writing between the consignee and producer in conditions which guarantee the product quality at least as effectively as the packaging.
Flexible bulk containers (big-bags), 1000 kg each, are kept one at a time on pallets on high storage racks. It is also allowed to keep two layers of shrinkwrapped flexible bulk containers, 500 kg each, on a pallet on high storage racks.
