Polyolefins (Polyethylene and Polypropylene)
With few exceptions, most polyolefin applications involve preparing a TiO2 concentrate by batch or continuous compounding before reducing the concentrate into the finished product. In this regard, ease of dispersion, resistance to yellowing, and optical properties are important performance properties. For thin-film and extrusion coating applications, dispersion performance and resistance to lacing and discoloration at elevated processing temperatures are of major concern.
