Finest Mineral


Malli Minerals International is a professionally managed enterprise actively engaged in the supplying of ilmenite Minerals to global market.

Ilmenite is a naturally occurring mineral composed primarily of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and iron (Fe). It is recognized for its distinctive black to dark brown color and is an essential source of titanium, a key element in various industrial applications. Ilmenite is widely used in the production of titanium dioxide pigments, titanium metal, and as a feedstock for the production of titanium sponge, which is further processed into various products, including aerospace components, medical implants, and corrosion-resistant alloys. Its versatility and titanium content make it a valuable mineral in industries ranging from paints and coatings to aerospace and metallurgy.

Typical applications include

  • Titanium Dioxide Production: Ilmenite is the primary source of titanium dioxide (TiO2), a crucial pigment used in paints, coatings, plastics, and paper, providing opacity, brightness, and UV resistance.
  • Aerospace Industry: Titanium metal, derived from ilmenite, is used in aerospace applications for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, corrosion resistance, and heat resistance.
  • Medical Implants: Biocompatible titanium alloys made from ilmenite are used in medical implants such as dental implants, joint replacements, and bone plates.
  • Aircraft Components: Titanium components from ilmenite are employed in aircraft structures, engines, and landing gear due to their lightweight and high-strength properties.
  • Marine Equipment: Used in marine applications, ilmenite-derived titanium alloys resist corrosion in saltwater environments, making them ideal for shipbuilding and offshore structures.
  • Chemical Industry: Ilmenite is a source of titanium chemicals used in various chemical processes, including the production of titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4) and titanium sulfate.
  • Refractory Materials: Ilmenite is used in refractory products like furnace linings and crucibles due to its heat resistance.
  • Welding Consumables: Titanium alloys derived from ilmenite are used in welding rods and wires for their strength and corrosion resistance.
  • Ceramics: Ilmenite is used as a colorant in ceramics and pottery, contributing to its dark color and unique aesthetic.
  • Corrosion-Resistant Alloys: Ilmenite-derived titanium alloys find applications in corrosive environments, including chemical processing and desalination plants.
  • Paints and Coatings: Titanium dioxide, sourced from ilmenite, is a primary white pigment in the paint and coating industry, providing opacity and UV protection.
  • Plastics: Ilmenite-based titanium dioxide is used to enhance the whiteness and opacity of plastics, particularly in the manufacturing of PVC pipes and profiles.

Product Typical Characteristics

  1. Chemical Composition: Ilmenite primarily consists of titanium dioxide (TiO2) and iron (Fe) as its main chemical components.
  2. Color: Ilmenite is typically black or dark brown in color due to its iron content.
  3. Hardness: It has a hardness ranging from 5 to 6 on the Mohs scale, making it moderately hard.
  4. Density: Ilmenite has a density of approximately 4.7 to 4.8 grams per cubic centimeter (g/cm³).
  5. Melting Point: The melting point of ilmenite varies depending on its composition but generally falls in the range of 1,550 to 1,850 degrees Celsius (2,822 to 3,362 degrees Fahrenheit).
  6. Magnetic Properties: Ilmenite exhibits weak magnetic properties, making it susceptible to magnetic separation methods in mineral processing.
  7. Titanium Content: The titanium content in ilmenite products can vary, with higher titanium content typically desired for specific applications.
  8. Heat Resistance: Ilmenite is known for its heat resistance, which is valuable in various industrial processes, including pigment production.
