Tips on how to precisely monitor using particle size and XRD phase quantification analysis

(This webinar will be conducted in Mandarin)

Titanium dioxide is a white pigment used in paints, pigments, plastics and various other specialty chemicals. It is preferred over other pigments like zinc oxide. Why? Because of its ability to give whiteness as well as hiding power or opacity to coatings. This is due to its properties of not absorbing visible light as well as its high refractive index. Titanium dioxide is however an expensive pigment and hence manufacturers need to carefully optimize it.

During this webinar, we share about some tips that manufacturers can engage to fully optimize their use of their pigments for high performance products. Our application specialist will draw reference to pigments such as titanium dioxide as well as other organic pigments.
1. How to check for agglomerations and ensure separation of titanium dioxide pigment particles: remember that the pigment scatters light most efficiently when all particles are separated and well dispersed
2. Monitoring the particle size of TiO2 pigments: Size affects the opacity (scattering) behaviour of the paint
3. Glossiness and durability: Maintaining a small particle size prevents against weathering. This is since coatings consisting of large particles or agglomerates can be more easily dislodged, resulting in the surface rapidly losing its gloss.

Dr Bao ZhaoHui, Senior X-ray Diffraction, Applications Specialist at Malvern Panalytical

Dr Bao has been working at Malvern Panalytical's supply center in the Netherlands for more than 7 years. His specialty is in X-ray diffraction, which can be to uniquely identify and quantify materials based on their crystal structure or to check for phase changes or the integrity or performance of the material under pressure, temperature, humidity changes. ZhaoHui completed his PhD in Materials Science at the Instiut National Polytechnice de Grenoble, France. He carried out his PhD fellowship at the European Commission in Germany where he focused on developing and characterising epitaxial oxide thin films. Today, Dr Bao shares his knowledge with clients who want to expand their research or industrial applications using XRD. This is through guest speaking at conferences and online seminars as well as product demonstrations.


Who should attend:
1. Researchers interested to improve their formula mix
2. Process managers who want to optimize their raw materials and additives
3. Anyone keen to learn about the applications of particle size for their industrial use or research
