Titanium dioxide pigment (chemical symbol: TiO2) is an inorganic white pigment found in an array of end-uses, including coatings and plastics, which account for more than 80 percent of global consumption. Tronox markets a range of titanium dioxide pigment grades, and our talented team of scientists works to enhance the performance of products in our customers’ current and future applications.
Tronox is one of only five major producers of TiO2 with proprietary chloride process technology. The chloride process, which accounts for 100 percent of Tronox’s pigment production gross capacity, produces pigment grades with a brighter appearance that is often preferred by manufacturers of coatings and plastics.
Tronox is among the lowest-cost producers of the product globally. This is of particular importance as it positions Tronox to be competitive through all facets of the TiO2 cycle. In addition, our company’s three TiO2 production facilities are strategically positioned in key geographies to reach key markets worldwide.
