“We make our TiO₂ pigments using both the sulfate 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-996 pigment. It’s a highly durable TiO₂ pigment made by the sulfate 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’s 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 recognized brands. Thanks to its optimized inorganic surface coating it has excellent durability making it suitable for an extensive range of architectural and industrial coatings.”
The world’s 3rd largest TiO₂ pigment manufacturer
Lomon Billions has been manufacturing TiO₂ pigment for 30 years. The Chinese company manufactures high-performance sulfate and chloride TiO₂ pigments for all major applications. With an annual production capacity of around 1000kt, it’s now the world’s 3rd largest producer of TiO₂ pigments, No.1 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 investment of RMB1.8billion (USD 285million) 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 100ktpa chloride pigment production lines have now been constructed at Jiaozuo. Commercial production on the first of these 2 new lines is already underway, 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 60ktpa additional chloride capacity.
Sulfate pigment capacity expansion at Lomon Billion’s Xiangyang site will add a further 50ktpa sulfate 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.”
