Brilliance inspired by titanium

Cristal is the world's second-largest producer of titanium dioxide and a leading producer of titanium chemicals. With nearly 4,000 employees on five continents, we are proud leaders in the innovation and manufacture of titanium products.

We are passionate about titanium, our employees and communities, and creating a cleaner, brighter future with the products we make. Cristal is also a fast-growing producer of mineral sands and titanium metal powder.

Cristal has offices and operations in Europe, the Middle East, Australia, North America and Latin America. TiONA® TiO2-based pigments are widely used to provide whiteness and opacity in many applications as paints, coatings, plastics and paper. CristalACTiV™ ultrafine TiO2-based materials are the key ingredients of a number of catalytic systems designed to significantly reduce pollution levels. They’re used either for pollution control at source (emissions from power stations or heavy duty diesel engines) or for in-situ pollution remediation, using photocatalytic materials based on CristalACTiV™ active ingredients.

This website is an information hub for CristalACTiV™ photocatalytic technologies, providing details on their performance as well as on the most significant systems based on our products. For a comprehensive look at our company and products, please also visit our corporate site.
