PPG Announces Worldwide TiO2 Technology License Agreement

December 14, 2012

PPG Industries recently announced that it has entered into a technology license agreement with China-based Henan Billions Chemicals Joint Stock Co. Ltd., which reportedly provides Henan Billions the right to use PPG’s technology for the manufacture of chloride-grade titanium dioxide (TiO2) on a worldwide basis. The agreement completes the license of PPG technology previously announced by both companies.

“We are pleased to reach this worldwide technology license agreement with Henan Billions, as it should expand the global supply of chloride-grade titanium dioxide, as well as provide a commercial opportunity for PPG technology,” said Charles F. Kahle II, chief technology officer and vice president of Coatings Research and Development for PPG. 

Henan Billions currently supplies sulfate-grade TiO2 to PPG.
