It occurs widespread in nature as tree type of crystalline minerals ores, of which rutile is exploited commercially.
It is used in the production of 70% of pigments worldwide and is an important component in giving whiteness and opacity to a variety of products like paints, paper, plastics, toothpastes and foods.
