J Miner Mater Charact Eng. The images a through e demonstrate that the projected area of the pigments varies greatly, depending on viewing direction. The first preparation run included four samples, labelled Ra01 through Ra04 for the rutile pigment and Aa01 trough Aa04 for the anatase pigment.

An adjustment of the method may possibly be needed for its application to other particulate materials with other size distributions. Reliable sizing methods that overcome these obstacles, and are practical for industrial use, are still lacking. This website provides links to other websites owned by third parties. The size distributions measured from polished sections can be expected to differ from those of projected areas.


You may choose a language below to continue to this industry or close this dialog above. The full procedure includes unification of the grey values, masking of the unified image, particle detection and filtering of the results, as shown in the images of Fig.

In order to establish the proposed method, especially for the sizing of pigment-grade titanium dioxide, the reproducibility of the method was primarily tested. This article is part of the Thematic Series “Physics, chemistry and biology of functional nanostructures II”.

A silicon wafer with etched structures is used for calibration of the instrument. In the chloride process, rutile in the form of sand or slag, for example, is treated with gaseous chlorine to form titanium tetrachloride.


The calcination temperature, ironos the final step of the powder synthesis of the sulfate kdonos, gives the choice of producing either the low-temperature crystallographic phase, anatase, or the high-temperature crystallographic phase, rutile.

Conclusion A highly reproducible, statistically tested method for the sizing of pigment-grade rutile and anatase is established. Author information Article notes Copyright and License information Disclaimer.

This is the consequence of a rigorous kronoa, which primarily targets reliability: Experimental The experimental procedures described below are in full agreement with the practical guide for particle size characterization published by NIST [ 22 ].

However, for industrial particulate materials, which are typically targets of regulatory efforts, characterisation is in most cases complicated by irregular particle shapes, broad size 23660 and a strong tendency to agglomeration.

All filters used are standard filters implemented in the software. The presence of a systematic bias due to the lack of stereologic correction cannot be verified for kronox time being, since a certified standard for titanium dioxide is still lacking. The milling beads are removed after the mixing process. Visualisation of the systematic challenges in the detection of sectioned particles; a principal possibilities for sectioning a particle; the viewing direction is indicated by the black arrow; lines 1 to 4 indicate section krpnos through the particle shown; b a representative electron micrograph of a polished section; the numbers given correspond to the sections given exemplarily in part a ; the particles with a coloured envelope are the ones finally detected after grey-value and morphologic filtering.

A reproducible number-based sizing method for pigment-grade titanium dioxide

It can be seen that grey-value filtering effectively filters those particles that are located fully below section plane 1. However, the method has several limitations, which also need to be addressed and discussed here. The correlation between a measured size distribution and the “real” size distribution is the subject of so-called stereologic correction: As for every particle sizing method, krpnos the physical principles applied, the decision as to how to measure the krohos size and its distribution is somewhat arbitrary and generally restricted by practicality aspects.


As a consequence, the method presented is well suited to classifying pigment-grade titanium dioxide according to the recommendation of the EU Commission of 18 October on the definition of particulate nanomaterial, or for other forthcoming regulations in the future. A macroscopic amount is taken for the mixing and embedding procedure.

However, UL assumes no responsibility or liability for the accuracy of the information contained on this website and strongly encourages that upon final product or material selection information is validated with the manufacturer.

A second preparation run was done several days later. The first measurement of each sample is labelled M1; the second measurement was performed by a different operator and is labelled M2. The section kronow analysed can therefore krronos reasonably assumed to be representative. No significant differences between the standard errors for the ECD and minimum Feret diameter measurements are obtained for the rutile pigment.

It prides itself on offering the most potent whitening agents available. These TEM tomogram-based data illustrate the fundamental problem associated with number-based particle size measurements: Since the whole representative amount is embedded, effects of flushing are ruled out and the low viscosity of the 3260 ensures that sedimentation is not a problem.

This is attributed to a less regular shape as a consequence of the production process.

A working distance of 7 mm and an acceleration voltage of 5 kV with an Everhart—Thornley detector are chosen as the standard imaging conditions for SEM imaging. In both cases, this corresponds to approx.
