Resource Efficiency Innovation Platform

Using natural resources sustainably

Resource efficiency minimizes negative environmental impacts when using the earth’s limited resources sustainably including water, energy, and materials. Ti-Pure™ products with the resource efficiency designation are intended to help our customers advance material efficiency through using products with improved properties such as increased opacity, and/or improved processability and dispersion properties. By delivering products that perform more efficiently, we unlock potential for increased performance at reduced raw material usage levels within coatings, plastics, and laminates applications. Preserving both material and natural resources is not just good business, it’s good for the planet.

We contribute to resource efficiency through:

  • Grades that improve processing efficiency and productivity thereby reducing production time and energy consumed such as Ti-Pure™ TS-1510
  • Creating TiO₂ pigments that maximize opacity and scattering efficiency for coatings and laminates that provide flexibility to improve performance or reduce material consumption
  • Designing pigments that enable the production of thinner plastic films or rigid plastic parts while maintaining performance properties
  • Creating grades with downgauging possibilities that reduce raw material needs
