Lithopone is a granular, white or greyish powder.

Lithopone is produced by precipitation through filtering, heating and quenching works and used as a base for pigment in paint, inc, cosmetics and many other applications in the plastic industry. It is also used as a filler in paper, leather and linoleum. Its use has meanwhile mostly been replaced by Titanium Dioxide which is more durable.
