CRISTAL 100

CRISTAL 100

 Cristal 100 is a grade of rutile titanium dioxide produced by the Chloride process that is lattice stabilized with alumina. It is recommended for use in many and ink applications, especially where gloss, colour and strength are prime factors.

 Cristal 100 is easily dispersed under simple high shear dispersion, in both solvent and water-based systems. It has the potential for exceptionally high gloss in interior coatings, automotive refinishes, inks and any industrial coatings, where the gloss parameter is of major importance.

  Cristal 100 is highly recommended as an exceptional performer in letterpress and gravure inks where gloss and low abrasivity are required.  It is also recommended in thin film applications such as can coatings, where opacity and strength are required.
