Cristal is very active in the electronics market in supplying high purity Titanium Chemicals for various applications within the market, especially for the manufacture of barium titanates. Barium titanates are used in the manufacture of ceramic capacitors. These products work by producing an electric voltage that is proportional to the pressure applied to the capacitor. Conversely, if an electric field is applied, the structure will change shape producing dimensional changes in the material.
Barium titanates and other piezoelectric products are of great importance to the growing electronic industry, where the need of higher speed electronics and smaller parts has made the purity of these products extremely important. Cristal Global high purity titanium tetrachloride is an important first step in the manufacture of these products.
