Our Unique Approach

Our journey to a brighter, cleaner world

Tronox is one of the world’s largest producers of titanium dioxide and a leading producer of titanium chemicals. We are passionate about titanium, our employees and communities, and creating a cleaner, brighter future with the products we make.

TiO2 is all around you.

It is the white pigment in the paint on your walls, cars and kitchen appliances; in the plastic of bags, food packaging, window profiles, siding and flooring; in fine paper and laminate countertops, and many other applications. In its ultrafine form, TiO2 is used in specialty applications like catalytic applications for industrial processes and mobile duties, as well as electronics, energy storage, photocatalysis and water treatment.

CristalACTiV™ is our ultrafine TiO2 product range for specialty applications.

Advanced Ceramics

Composites relying on TiO2 to improve their properties

From pottery and building materials to the most sophisticated implants, advanced ceramics are now indispensable materials in aeronautics, medicine, energy, environmental products and many other applications.

TiO2 is a precursor of choice for making advanced ceramics and electro-ceramics.

A material of choice for catalyzing your reactions

CristalACTiV™ TiO2 based catalysts are used in numerous chemical catalysis applications. Examples include Claus catalysis which converts hydrogen sulfide (H2S) into elemental sulfur. Another example is the use of TiO2-based catalysts in gas-to-liquid reactions to make synthetic fuels.

Whatever the catalysis application, we have a TiO2 to fit your specific needs.

Colored Pigments

TiO2 for a rainbow of colors

Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) is best known as a white pigment used in paints, plastics and paper, where it is the pigment of choice to give opacity and whiteness to a large variety of everyday materials. What is lesser known is that TiO2 can also be used as an ingredient to manufacture colored pigments and more specifically complex inorganic-colored pigments (CICPs) also called Mixed Metal Oxide (MMO) pigments.

Outstanding electroceramics built from titanium

Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is the starting material for dielectric and piezoelectric materials such as barium titanate (BaTiO3), lead zirconium titanate (PZT), and other titanates used in multilayer capacitors (MLCC), thermistors and piezoelectric devices.

CristalACTiV™ TiO2 delivers the characteristics that precursors for electroceramic products need: purity, particle size, ease of milling and crystallinity.

Energy Storage

Titanium-based energy storage solutions for the future

There are many rechargeable battery chemistries available today, but none delivers the high cycle capacity, fast charge and discharge rates, and unparalleled safety characteristics at the same time. Lithium batteries with lithium titanate (LTO) anodes are much safer and provide good performances when power is needed. Titanium dioxide is the starting point material for the manufacture of LTO batteries.

Environmental Catalysis

Our technology, your process, a cleaner world

In response to growing concerns about the environment, regulations on NOx emission are spreading globally. Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) has been widely adopted as the best available technology to reduce NOx from both stationary and mobile sources. The most effective SCR catalysts are based on TiO2. Tronox is a global technology leader with a complete product range of ultrafine TiO2-based products that can be adapted to meet customer needs.

Creating a cleaner world

Photocatalysis is the acceleration with a catalyst of a naturally occurring reaction in the presence of light, water and oxygen. When TiO2 is exposed to UV light, free radicals are generated which facilitate reduction and oxidation reactions converting harmful materials such as nitrogen, VOC’s and organic matter into harmless substances.

CristalACTiV™ TiO2 is the key ingredients in many self-cleaning and depolluting materials.

Specialty Glass

Tougher and thinner glass with TiO2

Over the years, the glass industry has been a leader in innovation, developing new products by adding other materials to change the appearance or physical properties of glass. TiO₂ or TiCl₄ are the materials of choice to improve the bulk and surface properties of glass.

Water Treatment

Cleaner water through the power of titanium

Access to clean water is becoming a growing societal concern. There are multiple methods to purify - drinking, municipal, waste or industrial - water today, including filtration, flocculation, absorption, biological treatment, UV treatment and photocatalysis.
