Learn all about Titanium Dioxide

What is Titanium Dioxide? Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is a naturally occurring oxide of titanium used primarily as a strong colorant in a broad range of popular products. The highest refractive index of any material ever belongs to titanium dioxide؛ even more than diamond. This means that it is capable of scattering visible light as a pigment. As a result, we can see an opaque color and it creates a bright, shiny and reflective quality. Also, thanks to the less known properties of titanium dioxide, it's extremely useful and important for preventing climate change and skin cancer. It's one of the ultra-white materials on earth and because it has a high UV-resistance and its ability ...

What is Iron Oxide?

What is Iron Oxide?

The Definition and Applications If you’re familiar with chemistry even a little bit, then you probably already know that iron and oxygen react chemically to form Iron oxide. There are sixteen known iron oxides and oxyhydroxides. Natural iron oxides are received from hematite (red iron oxide mineral), limonites, (range from yellow to brown), and magnetite (black iron oxide). Artificial iron oxide pigments are manufactured from basic chemicals. The three major methods for the production of synthetic iron oxides are thermal decomposition of iron salts or iron compounds, precipitation of iron salts usually accompanied by oxidation, and reduction of organic compounds by iron. Iron ...

Benefits of Using Powder Coating

Benefits of Using Powder Coating

Definition Powder coating without a doubt is one the most popular and most well-known types of paint application process. This is a type of coating that uses a dry powder to apply a finish to a product whether that be a home appliance, car parts or other objects. Powder coating tends to be dense, hard and durable which is why they're commonly seen in automotive applications. For powder coating, you'll need powder, a powder coating gun, air compressor, air filter to maintain dry air, electric oven dedicated for powder coating and pressure regulator. This is a more complicated type of painting but has great benefits that provide you with a high-quality look and feel. Benefits ...

Optical Brightener

Optical Brightener

History of Optical Brightener In 1929 someone found that aesculetin can emit fluoresces under ultraviolet light with the fabric, after being immersed in an aqueous solution, obtaining the whitening effect. The first commercially available optical brightener was produced by the Federal Republic of Germany Bayer organization in 1940. Since then, people have further developed a number of optical brightener agents. What is Optical brightener? The optical brightener (that is also known as the fluorescent brightener) is a transparent organic compound that can stimulate fluorescence under ultraviolet light. Many products we use every day include optical brighteners. Optical brightening ...

Pigments Are Everywhere

Pigments Are Everywhere

Definition The green color in plants, the red color of your shirt, the yellow paint of your living room, and the blue color of your car all have one element in common and that is pigment. Pigments are chemicals that add color to a material or object. Most pigments are dry colorants that usually ground into a fine powder. They are intensely colored and have two types that are very different from each other. Inorganic pigments and organic pigments. Inorganic pigments You can call this type, natural. They form in nature and have a very simple chemical structure. This type of pigments contain minerals and metals. These minerals and metals provide them their specific color. You should ...
