Ilmenite is the primary ore of titanium, a metal needed to make a variety of high-performance alloys. Most of the ilmenite mined worldwide is used to manufacture titanium dioxide, TiO2, an important pigment, whiting, and polishing abrasive.

Titanium (TiO2) in the form of Ti slag is used as a feedstock for pigments, paints and coatings, and is an ingredient in consumer products including cosmetics, toothpaste and food. It is also used to produce titanium metals for everything from medical implants to lightweight industrial components. TiO2 is considered a quality of life product – as disposable income rises, so does TiO2 consumption.
