Leucoxene

Leucoxene is separated from mineral concentrate at Chandala’s dry mill and is recovered as separate lower and higher TiO2 containing fractions. ¬†Leucoxene 85 (the larger volume, but with the lower TiO2 content of the two fractions) is used as a feedstock for the production of Titanium Dioxide pigment.¬†The higher TiO2 containing fraction, Leucoxene 92 is sold as an ingredient for the manufacture of welding electrode flux, and in a powdered form where it is used as a pigment and glaze material in the production of traditional roofing tiles in Japan.
