Taking proactive steps to address future regulations
Consumers today are demanding more details about the safety and sustainability of the products used in their homes than ever before. As a result, new regulations and requirements for ecolabel compliance are emerging.
Some of these potential new demands from regulators involve removing Trimethylolpropane (TMP), a common surface treatment for TiO₂, from product formulations. Doing so in a way that meets consumers’ desire for more sustainable products will require an innovative approach to TiO₂ product design. At Chemours, we’re answering these calls with the introduction of Ti-Pure™ TS-6700, a high-performance, TMP- and TME- free TiO₂ grade designed for waterborne architectural coatings applications. TME (Trimethylolethane) is a similar chemical to TMP and may also have regulatory hurdles to overcome. Ti-Pure™ TS-6700 was designed to meet current and anticipated regulatory demands.
In addition to creating a product without the use of TMP or TME, our goal in designing Ti-Pure™ TS-6700 was to make an excellent opacity, high gloss, and highly durable grade in a sustainable way to meet our own as well as our customers’ sustainability goals. Additionally, this grade was made with 100% renewable electricity and is easy to drop-in and use.
