​Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) Extenders​


SYLOWHITE™ Precipitated Silicate is manufactured specifically for use in the paint and printing ink industry. By using SYLOWHITE™ SM 405 silicate, the consumption of titanium dioxide (TiO2)​ can be significantly reduced without negatively affecting the hiding power and brightness of paint.

SYLOWHITE™ SM 405 Silicate is a precipitated amorphous sodium aluminum silicate with a particle size of less than 6.0 µm, and is well established as a cost-effective Titanium Dioxide Extender for coatings. Replacement of up to 20% wt./wt. is typical in current systems.
