KRONOS Grades for Coatings

Titanium dioxide is the most important white pigment used in the coatings industry. TiO2 is unique. It combines high refractive index with high scattering power in the visible region of the spectrum. It thereby imparts whiteness and opacity when incorporated into a coating.

This combination affords the coatings formulator a route to highly opaque and bright whites or tints at minimum film thicknesses. KRONOS offers rutile pigments in various grades, each delivering excellent performance properties for the type of paint or coating being manufactured – i.e., high chalk resistance with extreme durability for exterior paints and coatings, or low abrasion and high opacity in inks.

Key Applications
  • Industrial Coatings
  • Powder Coatings
  • Low-VOC Systems
  • UV Coatings
  • Coil Coatings
  • Can Coatings
  • Marine Coatings
  • Automobile Coatings
  • Wood Protecting
  • Emulsion Paints, interior and exterior
  • Decorative Coatings
  • Silicone Paints
  • Silicate Paints
  • Emulsion-Bound Plasters
  • Mineral Plasters

About us

Company details

Brightening the World

KRONOS is the TiO2 company. We take pride in making the world brighter with the most effective whitening agent in the world – titanium dioxide. This inorganic compound pigment makes hundreds of things white – from your computer mouse to the paint on your wall. Paper, toothpaste, sunscreen, cosmetics and just about any other commonplace item colored white contains KRONOS TiO2. TiO2 also makes colors as brilliant as they can be. 

We’ve been making TiO2 for nearly a century now, beginning in 1916 with anatase TiO2 pigments. In 1939, KRONOS began marketing the first rutile TiO2 pigment. Delivering more effective "hiding power," rutile TiO2 has since replaced anatase in paints, coatings and plastics. 

From our earliest beginnings to modern times, KRONOS continues to lead the industry in both process innovation and product quality.
