Type R-700. Pigment of high brilliance, light-blue shaded and of good characteristics of saturation and opacity. First of all recommended for use in industrial surfaces and those of architectural constructions, where high brilliance is needed.

Type R-706. Among rutile chloride pigments this one is of superb optical properties and durability. It is characterized by high brilliance, light-blue shade and excellent wetting. Thanks to this outstanding combination of properties Ti-Pure R-706 is considered to be the most suitable pigment for both water and solvent born paints, used as automobile (OEM), industrial, powder coatings as well as for architectural constructions coating.

Type R-902. Pigment of wide application combining good durability and opacity. It is used in various spheres as, for example, glossy and semi glossy coatings of facade and interior of architectural constructions and also in industry for coatings of high durability.

Type R-931. Pigment proper for usage in high solid systems (solid and high solid pigment volume concentration). This type, applied on well-processed surfaces, makes distribution of pigments optimal and guarantees strength and wholeness of coating’s film.
