HUNTSMAN/VENATOR R-FC5 Titanium Dioxide

Product Description

TIOXIDE® R-FC5 pigment is a fine crystal rutile pigment designed specifically

for use in plastics applications where it imparts excellent brightness, a blue undertone
and high opacity.

Its siloxane treatment ensures both low moisture pickup and outstanding dispersion
properties so that it can be incorporated in both liquid and melt systems with minimal
effect on viscosity.

Features

  • Excellent brightness
  • Good dispersibility
  • High tinting strength and blue undertone
  • Good rheological (flow) properties and low dust generation
  • High scattering and lightening power

Applications Highly Recommended

TIOXIDE® R-FC5 pigment is fine crystal rutile pigment designed specifically for plastics
applications where it imparts excellent brightness, a blue undertone and high opacity.
– Polyethylene for its Dispersibility, low reactivity with antioxidants
– Rigid and flexible PVC for its Dispersibility, opacity, self cleaning via chalking
– ABS for its Blue undertone offsets yellowness of polymer
– Styrene polymers for its Dispersibility, colour consistency, tint reduction
– PVC plastisol (spread coatings) for its Opacity, blue undertone to offset
any yellowness in substrate, dispersibility
– Engineering polymers for its Low moisture pick-up, dispersibility
– Rigid and flexible pipes for its Dispersibility, tint reduction, NSF approved for potable water

The main plastics application areas for TIOXIDE® R-FC5 pigment are:
– Masterbatch for packaging products, including single and multi-layer films, injection
moulded containers and blow mouldings
– ABS and polystyrene compounds
– Rigid and flexible PVC compounds for nonweatherable products
– Polypropylene compounds for nonweatherable applications
