TiO as white pigment exists since 1821 and was used from painting artists first. Since the 1870-ies the pigment could be produced in kg units and was used for special expensive coatings like battleships. In 1906 and 1907 the industrial sulfate process was invented, and the white pigment held entry into almost all parts of human life.
