Stallingborough PlantMay 1, 2019
The Stallingborough Plant, formerly owned by Cristal, is one of nine manufacturing plants producing titanium dioxide (TiO2) for Tronox, the world’s second-largest producer of TiO2. TiO2 is a bright white powder made from titanium ore that has the ability to pigment virtually any material. It makes possible the opacity, brightness, and durability in paint formulas that have made modern paints more cost-efficient, easier to use, and friendlier to the environment. TiO2 also gives plastics and rubber opacity and whiteness. It is used in such diverse products as printing inks, paper, ceramics, glass, leather, synthetic fibres, and colours formulated for art paints.
