Tronox’s Thann, France plant is Europe’s largest supplier of titanium chemicals (Titanium Tetrachloride and its derivatives), with more than 50 years of experience in safely manufacturing and distributing them throughout the world.
Titanium Tetrachloride (TiCl4) is a clear liquid used in the production of pearlescent pigments, titanium metal, surface treatments of metal and glass, and other various applications. Recently, the criticality of TiCl4 supply has been emphasized because of its irreplaceable role in Ziegler-Natta polymerization catalyst manufacturing, ultimately enabling the production of polypropylene polymer, the main component for anti-viral face masks.
Because of its high sensitivity to humidity, the synthesis of TiCl4 is a complex process that requires a high level of vigilance at each step, from feedstock utilization to packaging and handling of the final product.
Tronox demonstrates a high level of commitment to safety and quality through our uniquely offered support at our customers’ facilities.
The journey begins with a risk assessment at our customer’s site to ensure that the TiCl4 can be handled under safe conditions. Our technical service team provides frequent training sessions at our Thann plant facility to train our customers, our employees, and the local authorities on how to handle TiCl4 safely. In the last 20 years, more than 150 training sessions have been performed for over 3,500 people around the world.
Tronox specializes in the safe handling of highly reactive TiCl4 using a broad range of packaging solutions, from one liter to several tons, that offer great flexibility to address customer requirements. Thanks to robust and reliable logistics, our titanium chemicals can be shipped around the globe in compliance with the most stringent regulations.
