TiO2 prices fluctuate over time, sometimes by large amounts. White Pigment opacifier are always significantly lower cost and also fluctuate by only a fraction of the TiO2 price when it changes. Partial replacement of TiO2 with white pigment opacifier therefore makes the economic performance of your business more sustainable, in addition to lowering the environmental impact.
White Pigment Opacifier
LC SERIES : LC 80 , LC80 T, LC90, Lithomer TOX
LC pigment series known as white pigment opacifier Which increase the scattering power of light by partial replacement of TiO2. Scattering power is affected by a variety of factors, including path length,
concentration of scattering particles, difference in refractive index and distribution of scattering.
Application of multiple coats of a paint results in thicker films and can improve scattering. However, other performance properties can be negatively affected, resulting in longer application time and cost inefficiencies because of the increased volume of coating required.
Higher amounts of scattering particles, most commonly TiO2 and opaque polymer, result in higher scattering power, but TiO2 significantly increases cost. LC pigment which partially replace the TiO2 in paint formulations and decrease the overall Paint formulation cost.
KEY BENEFITS :
- Excellent hiding power and color performance.
- Improved opacity.
- Excellent thin film opacity, reduced coating weight.
- Excellent weatherability.
- Efficient use of TiO2 – Formulation cost optimization by partial TiO2 replacement with equal or improved coating performance.
Paints, Paper & Ink : Based on application LC pigment series can replace up to 100% TiO2 in paint formulations and one can developed their own formulation using LC sereis.
