Tipaque Optical Properties
Two key considerations when choosing particle size are pigment volume concentration (P.V.C.) and type of application. For paint and ink applications, medium particle size provides the greatest opacity and tining strength when the PVC is at 15-30%.  But in plastic applications, a smaller particle size performs best when the PVC is low (e.g. less than 10%). Because of their overall impact on the optical performance of your products, both particle size and distribution are strictly controlled in Tipaque TiO2 products. Please see Table -1 for low PVC correlations.
