PITTSBURGH, US: PPG Industries has started using titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment from Lomon Billions’ new chloride production line.

Lomon Billions is a leading global TiO2 producer and has manufactured chloride-process TiO2 since 2015. In February 2018, the company announced it was adding a second chloride-process TiO2 production line, which began producing earlier this year.

PPG will purchase TiO2 from Lomon Billions’ second line for use in manufacturing paints and coatings at many of its global production facilities. The new line’s quality meets or exceeds PPG’s TiO2 requirements.

TiO2 is an important raw material widely used by PPG and other paints and coatings manufacturers as a pigment to provide hiding, durability and whiteness characteristics.

“We appreciate Lomon Billions’ continued investment in this key raw material for the paints and coatings industry. Their chloride technology capacity expansion reflects their commitment to the TiO2 industry and to providing reliable, high quality supply to PPG globally,” said JT Jones, PPG vice president, procurement.

“This is an important milestone and marks a successful start of Lomon Billions’ new chloride production line. We will continue providing reliable and high-quality titanium dioxide to PPG globally from our new and existing lines,” added Ruiqing Tan, vice chairman, Lomon Billions.
