Why should you view this course?

When you know that TiO2 still represents 40-50% of total raw materials costs, you surely chase after TiO2 optimization strategies! Although switching to cheaper grades can be a short term solution, you will make bigger & more durable gains by optimizing TiO2 performance / loading ratio.

Join this course and:

  1. Save money by learning the 5 best TiO2 reduction strategies – Dry hiding |  Hollow particles |  Separation |  Spacing |  Stabilization

  2. Gain in autonomy with your own formulations by better understanding factors (scattering power, particle size...) governing white color strength and hiding power

  3. Get UNBIASED expert insight on commercial TiO2 reduction solutions available today & how to combine them all-together for best results
TiO2 Optimization: Practical Formulation Strategies

Who should view this course?

  • Paint & Inks Formulators / Developers eager to keep cost under control
  • Pigments, additives and fillers suppliers looking for ideas to better support their customers

  • Suitable for all categories of coatings, inks and related systems: solvent-based, high-solids, waterborne, melts and powder coatings.

    Course Outline

    1. Using TiOin Formulations – Important Aspects: 
      • Hiding power
      • Color strength
      • Optical properties of particles in a system: absorption, reflection, refraction, refractive index and scattering
      • PVC (Pigment Volume Concentration) and Critical PVC

    2. 5 Best Strategies for Optimal use of TiO2
      • Separation and distribution
      • Stabilization
      • Spacing: post-treatment, fillers, polymeric spacing agent, encapsulation
      • Dry hiding: (Critical) PVC and the relation with optical properties
      • Hollow fillers (incl. examples of fillers that can be used to optimize TiO2 performance)

    3. Practical strategies to combine solutions to achieve best cost/performance ratio

    4. Methods to check the efficiency of TiO2 in the complete system

    5. 30 mins Q&A - ask your questions directly to the expert!

    Very good! It gave new ideas like the usage of Air for better Scattering.

    Michael J. , from BASF Coatings GmbH

    Excellent course! This is my first introduction to this level of detail on TiO2 dispersions.

    Dennis P. , from Hewlett-Packard Company

    This very good course helped me to understand different ways of maximizing the hiding of TiO2 in coatings.

    Alice N. , from AkzoNobel

    Great course! Showed very interesting methods to get better opacity and whiteness.

    Joel R. , from Folien Fischer AG

    It explained in a very clear way key concepts to optimize level of TiO2.
