Better plastic performance

When it comes to manufacturing polyolefin master batches, biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films and engineering compounds, plastic producers require titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigments that will disperse rapidly and process well – even at high temperatures.


To support the plastics industry, we have developed TIOXIDE® TR48 pigment – an alumina surface treated, hydrophobic titanium dioxide grade.

High temperature performance

Engineered to process well at high temperatures, TIOXIDE® TR48 pigment provides fast dispersion in a range of plastics and has excellent coloristic and tint reduction capabilities. With a fine crystal and particle size that delivers a blue undertone and high opacity, TIOXIDE® TR48 pigment has been developed with low volatile organic compound (VOC) formulations in mind.

Typical applications for TIOXIDE® TR48 pigment include premium and general packaging systems, and the production of plastic parts for consumer electronic devices and the automotive industry.

Part of a wider product family

TIOXIDE® TR48 pigment is part of our TIOXIDE® TR28 family, which has a long history of excellent processing performance in a wide range of plastics systems.

We also offer a range of additional TIOXIDE® and SACHTLEBEN® pigments, which are known for their performance in a variety of masterbatch, compound and plastics processing systems.
