TiO2-free Contractor’s Paint Formulation

 

Keeping costs down is a top priority as we get back to work in a depressed market.

To make matter’s worse, the weak currency has pushed prices up for many inputs, particularly the costliest one in paint-making, titanium dioxide.

So to get your creative juices flowing, we’re offering a TiO2-free paint formulation as a free download.

Mohs Hardness Comparison Chart

 

How can you tell if a filler is going to be abrasive or not? The first point of reference is the Mohs Hardness scale.

Diamond is the hardest mineral in the world, so it sits at number 10 on the hardness scale. Pure talc is the softest mineral at number 1.

Other minerals fall in between these two.

This table gives you an idea of the hardness of various minerals and fillers, compared to each other.

Specific Gravity Comparison Chart

 

Specific Gravity or SG, is the ratio of the density (weight per unit volume) of a substance relative to the density of water, which we know is 1.

So if the SG of something is less than 1 it floats in water and if greater than one, it sinks.

It is also the ratio for converting mass to volume, or vice-versa. This chart gives the Specific Gravity of various minerals and fillers used in industry.

 

Would you like to see a paint formulation which contains no TiO2?
