Product information

White powder with the crystallographic form of rutile, non-toxic, non-flammable and chemically inactive, surface treated with aluminium and silicon compounds and modified with hydrophobic organic substances.

TYTANPOL® R-220 is easily processable pigment highly durable to weathering conditions with very good optical properties (high tinting strength and hiding power). It is chalk resistant pigment with high colour and gloss retention.

Application

TYTANPOL® R-220 is a pigment particularly recommended for the production of plastics exposed to the outdoor conditions e.g. polyvinyl chloride (soft and rigid), engineering plastics and moderately-filled polyolefin concentrates.

Because of its susceptibility to premature discoloration, we do not recommend this pigment for colouring a rigid polyvinyl chloride stabilized with lead compounds.

Safety of use

TYTANPOL® R-210 is safe to transport, use and disposal. The Safety Data Sheet provides detailed information about how to use our pigments safely.

This pigment is suitable for products intended for direct contact with food.

Packaging and Transport

TYTANPOL® R-220 is available in packages of:

  • 25 kg paper valved bags,
  • 1,000 kg (flexible big-bags),
  • at the customer’s request, also other packaging, e.g. polyethylene bags.

TYTANPOL® R-220 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.

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.

Storage

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.
