Rutile is a mineral primarily composed of titanium dioxide (TiO2). It is the most common natural form of TiO2. Mainly utilized as a raw material for manufacturing chloride titanium dioxide pigments, it is also employed in the production of titanium metal and welding rod fluxes. Rutile possesses exceptional properties such as high temperature resistance, low temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, high strength, and low specific gravity. It finds wide applications in military aviation, aerospace, navigation, machinery, chemical industry, seawater desalination, and other fields. Rutile itself is an essential raw material for high-end welding electrodes and serves as the optimal raw material for producing rutile titanium dioxide. Its chemical composition is TiO2.

The sand we offer undergoes meticulous processing using advanced technological machines. In addition, the provided sand undergoes rigorous examination based on various quality parameters to ensure its compliance with industry standards.

We are producing and supplying the following rutile types::

Technical Details

Category: oxide minerals. Formula: TiO2. Colour: reddish brown, red, pale yellow, pale blue, violet, rarely grass-green, black if high in Niobium (Nb) and Tantalum (Ta). Common impurity: Fe, Nb, Ta.

Main Applications

The main uses for rutile are the manufacture of refractory ceramic, as a pigment, and for the production of Titanium metal. Rutile is widely used as a welding electrode covering. It is also used as a part of the ZTR index, which classifies highly weathered sediments.

Rutile sand typically varies in purity depending on specific production processes and extraction methods, but generally, high-quality rutile sand should have a high TiO2 content, typically above 90%. Even higher purity rutile sand may reach TiO2 content of 95% or higher.
