Titanium Dioxide is a white, opaque, and naturally- occurring mineral. It is then chemically processed to remove impurities It is odorless and absorbent.

It may be added to products to obtain better coverage and hide the surfaces’ imperfections (drywall joints, patchwork, etc). Its excellent coverage properties create an opaqueness to better cover the base surface. It is recommended to add on average 5%, up to a maximum of 10% (about 100ml per Liter).

Titanium Dioxide is also used to create the color WHITE.

It may be used with our natural paint products. It is not necessary to add Titanium Dioxide to Smooth Base-coat & Stucco as these products are very white in their untinted state.


Creating the Perfect White – Using Titanium Dioxide

Titanium Dioxide is the pigment used to create the color white. It is a pure white powder with no undertones. The more Titanium Dioxide is added, the crisper and more opaque the white will be. Depending on the opacity or brightness of the white required, the amount of Titanium Dioxide you will want to use can vary from 20ml to 75ml Titanium Dioxide per litre. 

Our paints and coatings come untinted with the pigments separately; this way you can test out and make changes at home and create your perfect "white". It is recommended to do a small test patch (ex. with one litre of paint), letting the paint dry and assessing the color before tinting the full amount. From there, you can add more pigment to make the white crisper, or completely change colors with different pigments/ratios. It is important to write down the ratios of paint & pigments you use so you can recreate the same color later. If you add smaller increments of the water and pigments you can always adjust with more/different pigments, or add more water for a different consistency.

EX: For 1 L of Natural Paint: Combine 40ml titanium dioxide + 40ml lukewarm water in a small container. Mix until homogeneous (no lumps). Pour this mixture into your paint and mix well.
