Rutile, leucoxene and Ilmenite are titanium oxide-based products that are used to create titanium dioxide pigments, titanium metals, titanium chemicals as well as many other applications. Titanium therefore can be found everywhere in our daily lives. It’s in the paint on the walls of our houses, in the planes that take us on holidays, the cars and buses we use to go to work as well as many items made with plastics and ceramic.
Most of the titanium products sold by Cristal Mining are converted into titanium dioxide pigment. This pigment is considered to be the brightest and whitest pigment with the highest opacity of any commercial available pigment product. It is used in many applications including paints, plastics and paper. It is the superior opacity, brightness and whiteness of titanium dioxide pigments that drives the demand for the titanium products produced by Cristal Mining.
