Micronized Titanium Dioxide
Our Micronized TD is 15 nanometers in particle size.
Micronized TD is popular because it is more translucent than regular TD, yet it still has good adhesion and it offers excellent UV protection.
Oil dispersible. Stearic acid in Micronized TD is coconut derived.
About The Micron Size:
A micron is 1 millionth of a meter, and a nanometer is 1 billionth of a meter.This dot: "." is approximately 1/64th of an inch and equals 615 microns.
Here are some common items and their respective particle sizes:
|Eye of a needle||1,230 microns|
|Human hair||40-300 microns|
|Tobacco Smoke||0.01 - 1 microns|
|Beach Sand||100 - 2000 microns|
|Pollen||10 - 1000 microns|
|Typical atmospheric dust||0.001 - 30 microns|
|TKB's Regular Titanium Dioxide||1.0 - 1.7 microns|
