TiO2 provides several key benefits in plastic products such as opacity, UV damage resistance, color retention, gloss, and brightness. Join us on June 3rd as Chemours Technical Fellow, Dr. Philipp Niedenzu, Chemours shares a deeper understanding of the basic optical principles of TiO2 in plastics applications.
In this webinar you'll learn:
- The difference between anatase and rutile TiO2
- The fundamental properties of TiO2 and how they impact plastics properties
- How TiO2 particle size and distribution relates to color matching and pure white applications
- The effects of the particle size and undertone of TiO2
Chemours Technical Fellow
Dr. Philipp Niedenzu is currently a technology fellow for Chemours Titanium Technologies. He joined DuPoint in 1991 after completing a BA degree in chemistry from The University of Kentucky (1985). He received his Ph.D from The Ohio State University in inorganic chemistry (1991). He has been working in the performance chemicals industry for over 25 years in a variety of technical, marketing, manufacturing and innovation roles within DuPont and Chemours. His current research is focused on studying the behavior of light transmission and deflection primarily in plastic matrices. He is certified as a six-sigma black belt and has authored over 30 technical papers. Philipp is also an eight-time recipient of the Society of Plastics Engineers "best paper award" and is named as the inventor for 11 United States patents and applications.
