Titanium Dioxide

Overview Industry Overview:

Titanium dioxide is a natural chemical compound that creates the whitest of whites – in paints, coatings, and varnishes, in papers and plastics, and in cosmetics and foods. In fact, titanium dioxide alone accounts for 70% of all production volume of pigments worldwide, making it one of the top 50 compounds in the chemical industry. It is used as a tattoo pigment, whitens skim milk to make it more palatable, and is used in the lines marking tennis courts.

In addition to its use as a coloring agent, titanium dioxide is a strong sunscreen. Its high refractive index, strong UV light absorption, and stability in combination with gentleness on the skin make it a go-to chemical of choice in commercial sun blocks. In its powder form, it is also used as an opacifier in a variety of products. Properly formatted, it can even be put to work as a pearlescent agent; its interference patterns can give you paint that appears to change colors based on the angle of illumination

“I’m so happy for the 2 hires Ropella made for SDI.  Your diligent work, prompt follow up, and knowledge about the candidates were so impressive.  More importantly, since it was the first time for me, as a small company owner, to work with your firm, your recommendations and tips on my other requests for “how to” and “what to” (e.g. how to interview, discuss money, etc) were so helpful!  You also fully understood my requirements and helped me analyze candidates one by one.”
