is a white inorganic compound, which has been used for around 100 years in a vast number of diverse products. It is depended on it for its non-toxic, non-reactive and luminous properties, which safely heighten the whiteness and brightness of many materials.
It is the whitest and brightest of known pigments, with reflective qualities; it can also both scatter and absorb UV rays.
When used specifically as a pigment in paints, TiO2 is called titanium white, Pigment White 6 or CI 77891. It is also known as "the perfect white" or "the whitest white" due to its powerful, pure whitening qualities.
