FP-Opacity Pigments™ are the next generation development in TiO2 efficacy. These white pigment composites have an average particle size of 1 micron with each particle of FP-Opacity Pigment containing between 3 and 5 TiO2 particles, each statistically spaced from each other by the optimum distance of scattering of 280 nm.
The nature of the “special structure” of the calcium carbonate shell produced means that this product will maximize the light scattering and hence, the whiteness and opacity by several mechanisms.
By replacing a portion of the TiO2 with FP-Opacity Pigment, the average distance between TiO2 particles by the “dilution effect” is increased, in addition to replacing the volume of TiO2 with TiO2 particles that are optimally spaced.
In many plastics applications, FP-Opacity Pigment can be used to replace 10 – 30% of the TiO2 and not reduce the optics.
