Difference Between Titanium Dioxide and Lithopone


Titanium dioxide

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is an important inorganic chemical product, which has important applications in coatings, inks, paper, plastics, chemicals, ceramics and other industries. Titanium dioxide powder, the main component is white pigment of titanium dioxide (TiO2). The scientific name is titanium dioxide, and the molecular formula is TiO2, which is a polycrystalline compound with regular particles arranged in a lattice structure. Titanium dioxide has the lowest relative density. The production process of titanium dioxide has two routes of sulfuric acid method and chlorination method.

Lithopone(Pigment white)

Lithopone is a white crystalline powder. For the mixture of zinc sulfide and barium sulfate, the more zinc sulfide, the stronger the hiding power and the higher the quality. Density 4.136 ~ 4.34 g / cm3, insoluble in water. In case of acid, it is easy to decompose and generate hydrogen sulfide gas. In case of hydrogen sulfide and alkali solution, it does not work. It is light gray after being exposed to ultraviolet light in sunlight for 6 to 7 hours, and returns to its original color in the dark. It is easily oxidized in the air and deteriorates after moisture.

titanium dioxide coatings

For hiding power,  anti-sink effect, acid resistance, titanium dioxide tio2 is better than lithopone, but the price is higher. Titanium dioxide and lithopone are widely used in many industries. Lide powder is widely used in thermoplastics and paper, the pigment industry and the cosmetics industry, while titanium dioxide is widely used in coatings, plastics, inks and other industries.
