Product information

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 hydrophobic organic compounds.

With its unique physical and chemical properties, TYTANPOL® RS has excellent processing qualities when pigmenting plastics. Due to its low moisture content, it can be processed in high temperatures without creating problems and does not cause lacing in plastic film . Thanks to its relatively small particle size and the specific nature of its surface it ensures exceptionally easy wetting and dispersibility in polymer matrix. It has good optical properties (pigmented products have a high level brightness, a neutral tint and opacity).

This pigment type is moderately weather resistant.

Application

TYTANPOL® RS is especially recommended for use in the production of pigment concentrates and pigmenting a broad range of plastics: flexible PVC (not stabilised with lead compounds), PE (especially low density linear PE), PP and other polyolefines, plastisols, ABS, SAN, polystyrene, acrylic plastics, polyurethanes, polyamides, polycarbonates, elastomers, rubber products, silicone products, vinyl floor lining and linoleum.

It is especially suitable for pigmenting plastic film and leather, and is also effective when used with epoxy plastics, polyesters and some synthetic fibres.

Safety of use NSF

TYTANPOL® RS 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 pipes made of for plastic pipes and related materials in direct contact with potable water.

Packaging and Transport

TYTANPOL® RS 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® RS 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 ® RS 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.

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. It is also allowed to keep two layers of shrinkwrapped flexible bulk containers, 500 kg each, on a pallet on high storage racks.
