Argex Titanium has developed a proprietary mineral extraction process that allows for the production of high purity pigment grade titanium dioxide (TiO2) product which can be sold to the end-users in the paint, plastic, coating, food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries
The proprietary processing technology is unique because of its ability to produce high purity TiO2 through a single process directly from the ore material. The innovation of the process lies in how known and proven equipment is used in combination with chemistry and metallurgy performed in the right sequence. The process itself operates at atmospheric pressure and low temperature, thus avoiding the need to handle chemicals at very high pressures and high temperatures.
Argex’s technology is also environmentally friendly due to its high energy efficiency, low emissions and use of relatively low levels of hydro chloric acid that is regenerated after use.
