Used for coloring plastics, ceramics, building materials, and coatings; [eChemPortal: SIDSUNEP] Listed as a ceramic colorant with the name "Chrome antimony titanium buff rutile" and the formula (Ti, Cr, Sb)O2; Composition is approximately (Ti0.90Sb0.05Cr0.05)O2 with a color of light to medium ocher (buff); [Ullmann]
"Mixed phase dye based on titanium dioxide (rutile) where chromium & antimony ions partially replace titanium ions in the lattice. TSCA Definition 2008: An inorganic pigment that is the reaction product of high temperature calcination in which titanium (IV) oxide, chromium (III) oxide and antimony oxide in varying amounts are homogeneously and ionically interdiffused to form a crystalline matrix of rutile. Its composition may include any one or a combination of the modifiers Al2O3, MnO, NiO, WO3, or ZnO. This substance is identified in the COLOUR INDEX by Colour Index Constitution Number, C.I. 77310."
