Tronox Ltd. announced that it has completed its acquisition of the TiO2 business of The National Titanium Dioxide Company Ltd., known as Cristal. This acquisition positions Tronox as the preeminent TiO2 and Titanium Chemicals producer in the world.

The combination of the TiO2 businesses of Tronox and Cristal creates the world’s largest and most highly integrated TiO2 pigment producer with assets and operations in six continents. The combined company will operate 11 TiO2 pigment plants in eight countries with a total capacity of 1.3 million metric tons.

Through their proprietary chloride technology, Tronox produces the highest quality TiO2 available. Tronox’s chloride-process technology yields consistently whiter, brighter pigment grades, which are preferred in paints, coatings and plastics. This acquisition also positions Tronox to better meet global demand as the industry’s premier TiO2 and feedstock co-products provider.

Dowd and Guild Inc. is proud to be a supplier of Tronox’s Titanium Dioxide. If we can help you with your TiO2 needs, please give us a call at 925-820-7222 or by email at
