Using high pressure Homogenizers for titanium dioxide or zinc oxides is instrumental in the development of personal care products such as sunscreen and sunblock as well as in the chemical industry for paints, coatings and adhesives.
Titanium dioxide has terrific UV blocking abilities and is therefore widely used in sunscreen lotions. You’ll see below how our Sonolator high pressure homogenizer systems can be used to simultaneously emulsify lotions while deagglomerating the titanium pigments very evenly throughout the mixture. Titanium pigments are also used in paints and coatings because they have great durability and opacity qualities, imparting both surface protection and brightness. Sonic’s homogenization equipment provides outstanding dispersion of those solids pigments so that the qualities you seek, such as brightness and surface coverage, are much better than through traditional mixing methods.
