“We make our TiO2 pigments using both the sulphate and chloride process,” says Julie Reid, Marketing Director.
“Our LOMON®and BILLIONS®TiO2 pigments are global brands, approved and used by leading global coatings and inks producers.
“One of our best-selling TiO2 pigments for interior and exterior coatings is LOMON® R-996pigment. It’s a highly durable TiO2 pigment made by the sulphate process. Its specially selected inorganic and organic surface treatment makes it suitable for both interior and exterior architectural coatings and for industrial coatings. Customers also find it effective in plastics and inks.
“Our world class specialist BILLIONS®TR52 pigment for printing inks is designed for making high quality surface and reverse printing inks and is relied on by inks producers worldwide. It is suitable for water-based and solvent-based formulations and delivers exceptional performance across a range of properties: superb gloss, outstanding dispersion, excellent opacity and low abrasivity. Our tests show that BILLIONS®TR52 pigment delivers the best performance in all these critical areas when compared with several key competitive products.
“Our latest pigment for coatings is BILLIONS®BLR-895 pigment, made using the chloride process. It was developed through consultation with our customers and is approved and used by leading global coatings producers. BILLIONS® BLR-895 pigment has excellent dispersion, opacity and gloss and delivers brilliant whiteness with a clean blue tone. In fact, BLR-895 pigment can deliver a brighter, bluer white when compared with several competitive chloride TiO2 pigments, including other internationally recognised brands. Thanks to its optimised inorganic surface coating it has excellent durability, making it suitable for an extensive range of architectural and industrial coatings.”
The world’s third largest TiO2 pigment manufacturer
Lomon Billions has been manufacturing TiO2 pigment for 30 years.
The Chinese company manufactures high-performance sulphate and chloride TiO2 pigments for all major applications.
With an annual production capacity of around 1000kt, it’s now the world’s third largest producer of TiO2 pigments, number one in Asia and growing fast.
Growing from strength to strength
In fact, Lomon Billions has grown from strength to strength in 2019.
Last year, the company announced an investment of RMB1.8bn (US$285M) in the construction of an additional 200kt chloride capacity at its chloride TiO2 pigment manufacturing site in Jiaozuo, and its ambition to grow its chloride capacity still further.
Two new 100kt/yr chloride pigment production lines have now been constructed at Jiaozuo.
Commercial production on the first of these two new lines is already underway and the second line will be fully commissioned by the end of this year, with commercial production expected in H1 2020.
In June, Lomon Billions acquired the Yunnan Xinli site in China to provide more chloride TiO2 pigment manufacturing capacity.
This site is currently being refurbished for restart in 2019 and is expected to deliver around 60kt/yr additional chloride capacity.
Sulphate pigment capacity expansion at Lomon Billion’s Xiangyang site will add a further 50kt/yr sulphate manufacturing capacity in 2019.
“Our annual manufacturing capacity will grow from 700kt to around 1000kt in 2019,” says Julie.
“The additional capacity at Jiaozuo, Xiangyang and Xinli strengthens our global competitiveness and will allow us to increase our chloride TiO2 pigment portfolio to manufacture more high-performance chloride TiO2 pigments for a wider range of applications including growing our portfolio for plastics applications.”
