The titanium oxide or titanium dioxide, is a mineral from the group of oxides whose formula is TiO2, is usually brown and known as rutile.
Titanium dioxide is widely used as a white pigment because of its great covering power. It is also used to make glazes opaque and matte.
It is virtually used at all temperatures and is a modifier of color glazes. Mixed with a small proportion of white enamel it can form an antique white.
