Rutile is the most common natural form of Titanium Oxide (TiO2).

Rutile is another major titanium ore used in the manufacturing of titanium di-oxide pigments, titanium metal, a high-tech alloy that stands apart for its light weight, high strength and resistance to corrosion. IMC’s Rutile is a common accessory mineral found in high-temperature and high-pressure metamorphic and igneous rocks. IMC’s Rutile is most suitable for the welding electrode industry.

Advantages

Rutile which is low on Phosphorus (P) and Sulphur (S) is known to possess better quality than their P&S-rich counterparts.

Its higher TiO2 content helps in reducing the amount of splattering and allows slag formation.

Lacks in contaminants like Niobium, Iron, etc., which helps to keep the flux intact during welding.

Is mostly environment-friendly, thanks to 0% oil usage which reduces sulphur contamination to 0.02%.

Applications

Used in the manufacture of titanium di-oxide pigments, titanium metal and titanium sponge, a high-tech alloy owing to its light weight, high strength and resistance to corrosion.

Used in the manufacture of refractory ceramic as a pigment.

Used extensively in the welding electrode sector.

Used in paints, plastics, paper, foods, and other applications that call for a bright white colour.
