New Product Reduces Cost While Offering Comparable Performance for Coatings and Other Markets

ALVERN, Pa., - PQ Corp., a leading producer of inorganic specialty chemicals and engineered glass materials, has announced the launch of ADVERA® Ti for partial replacement of titanium dioxide in coatings, plastics, paper coatings, and other markets.
