Applications of Titanium Dioxide in Paper Industry

Page 1

Applications of Titanium Dioxide in Paper Industry Titanium Dioxide is widely used in so many crucial industries, and the paper industry is one of them. The use of Titanium Dioxide in the paper industry is 3rd on the list, in terms of consumption. To get high strength with low weight, the big paper product consumers, such as the manufacturer of magazines, Dictionaries, banknotes, copier paper, and magazine covers, consider the Titanium Dioxide in place of calcium carbonate and talcum powder. Other than that, Titanium Dioxide makes paper’s white, non-transparent, shiny, thin but smooth, and also impervious to it for printing.

The Decorative paper, which is majorly used in the production of wallpaper, furniture, and flooring, is also manufactured with the help of Titanium dioxide. This paper is used in a low ash paper production, such as paper money and Bible paper, as both of them require a good opacity. In China, the demand for these papers is at the peak, for improving homes and creating high-end furniture. So the demand for this paper rises all over this year, and so does the Titanium dioxide. Titanium Dioxide TiO2 is mainly used in several kinds of paper productions, here are some of the paper types:

Titanium Dioxide is a simple inorganic compound composed as a pure white powder with the chemical formula TiO2. Usually, it is available in two main crystal forms, which are rutile and anatase. Anatase is economical, evenly dispersed in water-based systems, and a perfect opacifier. Titanium Dioxide TiO2 is mainly used in several kinds of paper productions, here are some of the paper types:

Non-Calendering Fibre-Free Paper This paper is used for letters, business, and photocopying of high-level paper. The main reasons for using titanium dioxide in this paper making is the requirement of opacity, brightness, adhesion, optical brightness coefficient, and abrasion.

Calendering Without Fibre Paper These papers are generally used for high-end magazines and advertising purposes, so titanium dioxide is used on these to get the opacity, brightness, and coloring rate.

Calendered Wood Pulp Paper This paper is mainly used for samples such as mail orders, inside newspaper propaganda paper, and general magazine publications. In the coating of these products, titanium dioxide plays an important role in improving the opacity and brightness characteristic.

Coated Cardboard The cardboard used for packaging purposes such as small boxes. Titanium dioxide is mainly used for the surface coating of this cardboard because of the low brightness. The amount of titanium dioxide should be higher than 20%, as the opacity is a crucial factor to cover the original cardboard.

Bleached Cardboard This cardboard is commonly used for the production of paper cups and folding cardboard boxes( liquid and solid packaging). Titanium dioxide is vital for cardboard coating to deliver a particular brightness and color.

Laminated Paper The paper is commonly used for furniture and flooring, this time titanium dioxide in the form of slurry used, the amount of Titanium should be more than 20% to fulfill the requirements such as opacity, gloss retention, color, and adhesion.

The estimate of the amount of Titanium Dioxide is now 30,000 tons/year. So it can be said that no matter what kind of paper production is it, the need for titanium dioxide is valuable in every case, as the process of production is quite the same. And since, the cost and demand of titanium dioxide in papermaking are high, there are only limited options of paper mills. So it will be better if you only believe in the best Titanium Dioxide Suppliers.
