The main reason for using FP-Opacity Pigment™ can be given in three words – “Significant Cost Savings”. For every kilogram of TiO2 pigment replaced by our Opacity Pigment™ you will make significant raw material cost savings while maintaining your product performance and quality. Since you are only replacing TiO2 with the Opacity Pigment™ you can also keep the functionality and cost benefit of your current extender package.

TiO2 price comparison

TiO2 prices fluctuate over time, sometimes by large amounts. FP-Opacity Pigments™ are always significantly lower cost and also fluctuate by only a fraction of the TiO2 price when it changes. Partial replacement of TiO2 with FP-Opacity Pigments™ therefore makes the economic performance of your business more sustainable, in addition to lowering the environmental impact.

TiO2 Cost Savings: Example in Silk/Satin Paint

For a range of Silk paints and their estimated expected annual sales volumes, savings can be made across all formulations ranging from 0.01-0.03 $/L for 5-12% replacement ratio.

FP-Opacity Pigment™ – the project that delivers year after year.

Savings achieved will be formulation dependant, but across the TiO2 pricing/supply cycle you will continue to make savings. Considered as an investment project, investing $50,000 of lab time in replacing 100t of TIO2 with FP-Opacity Pigment™ will save ~$100k per annum, which is ~$500k over 5 years at an IRR of ~250%.
