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.
