Kronos Worldwide Inc is a producer and marketer of value-added titanium dioxide pigments, or TiO2, a base industrial product used in different applications.

Kronos Worldwide Inc is a Delaware Corporation. The Company is a global producer and marketer of value-added titanium dioxide pigments (TiO2). TiO2 is an inorganic pigment used to impart whiteness, brightness and opacity for products such as coatings, plastics, paper, fibers, food, ceramics and cosmetics. The Company owns and operates an ilmenite mine in Norway pursuant to a governmental concession with an unlimited term. It manufactures and sells iron-based chemicals, which are co-products and processed co-products of sulfate and chloride process TiO2 pigment production. These co-product chemicals are marketed through its Ecochem division, and are used mainly as treatment and conditioning agents for industrial effluents and municipal wastewater as well as in the manufacture of iron pigments, cement and agricultural products. The Company manufactures and sells titanium oxychloride and titanyl sulfate, which are side-stream products from the production of TiO2. Titanium oxychloride is used in specialty applications in the formulation of pearlescent pigments, production of electroceramic capacitors for cell phones and other electronic devices. It produces TiO2 in two crystalline forms: rutile and anatase. Rutile TiO2 is manufactured using both a chloride production process and a sulfate production process, whereas anatase TiO2 is only produced using a sulfate production process. Chloride process rutile is preferred for the majority of customer applications. From a technical standpoint, chloride process rutile has a bluer undertone and higher durability than sulfate process rutile. Although many end-use applications could use either form, chloride process rutile is the preferred form for use in coatings and plastics, the two largest end-use markets. Sulfate process anatase represents a much smaller percentage of annual global TiO2 production and is preferred for use in selected paper, ceramics, rubber tires, man-made fibers, food and cosmetics. It currently produces over 40 different TiO2 pigment grades under the Kronos trademark which provide a variety of performance properties to meet customers specific requirements. The Companys major customers include domestic and international paint, plastics and paper manufacturers. The TiO2 industry is highly competitive. It competes mainly on the basis of price, product quality, technical service and the availability of high performance pigment grades. The Companys operations are governed by various environmental laws and regulations.
