Tougher and thinner glass with TiO2

As a result of its hardness and refractive index, TiO2 is a preferred component in technical glass manufacturing. Indeed, by melting anatase TiO2 with other oxides at high temperatures, glass with higher scratch and/or drop resistance is formed. The optical properties of TiO2 also enable thinner mid- and high-index ophthalmic glasses when added to the melt. In addition, TiO2 can be applied on the surface of the glass in order to make it self-cleaning (photocatalysis) or anti-reflective.

Tronox offers a range of products for commercial and developmental glass applications.
