Over 750 million gallons of paint is sold in the United States each year and its positive effect in giving new life to architecture can be breathtaking, whether it’s a freshly painted door or a stunning new exterior coat of color to an entire house. One of the chemicals that makes this transformation possible is Titanium Oxide, which has spectacular benefits of opacity and hiding performance. However, it also contributes to a large carbon footprint due to its energy intensive manufacturing process and as well as undesirable byproducts. Join the team at Dow Chemical Company for the vibrant science of how they implemented pre-composite polymers to create higher preforming and greener architectural house paints.
