Titanium Dioxide Solutions for Laminates

Enabling Custom Color and Design for Flooring and Furniture

Laminate manufacturers need papers, foils, and print-based applications that have:

  • Good opacity and hiding power
  • Light stability and color retention
  • Optimal titanium dioxide (TiO₂) efficiency
  • Bluish-white, high brightness with excellent hiding that results in even color and formation

The Ti-Pure™ solution for laminates reduces downtime and keeps production lines running smoothly by ensuring a consistent product with minimal variation from reel-to-reel. Retention also enables high levels of paper runnability with minimized paper web breaks.

Ti-Pure™ R-796+

This laminate-grade TiO₂ enhances opacity and color retention. Its surface treatment also makes Ti-Pure™ R-796+ compatible with a wide range of water chemistries. Learn more about Ti-Pure™ R-796+.

Titanium Dioxide for Laminates

High-quality titanium dioxide (TiO₂) adds indispensable value to materials used in the manufacture of laminate flooring and furniture, particularly for customers who produce high and low-pressure decor papers, decorative foils, and print-based applications.

The Ti-Pure™ Advantage

Quality Assurance in Product Manufacture

Inconsistent TiO₂ yields uneven retention, resulting in color unevenness and clumped deposits. Even when producers add more TiO₂ to compensate, paper strength and runnability decrease. Décor paper makers know that Ti-Pure™ TiO₂ is manufactured to meet all quality and consistency targets, delivering:

Reel-to-reel color consistency

The number-one reason that paper mills lose production time and profitability is a lack of reel-to-reel color consistency. Using the right TiO₂ achieves this color consistency, which reduces production time and increases profit.

Appearance and light stability

TiO₂ pigments help printers achieve the best results by ensuring blue-white undertones that create a wider range of vibrant colors while keeping the image and pattern intact. TiO₂ also enables laminate products to maintain their vibrancy and resist the discoloration caused by light exposure.

Paper strength

Paper impregnators or printers need consistent quality to avoid breaks that slow production. High-quality TiO₂ allows printers to use a lower base weight paper to achieve more square meters per ton, leading to higher profit margins.
