Potassium Titanate

Material with excellent heat and abraision resistance
Pursuit of functionality

Our subsidiary Toho Material Co., Ltd. manufactures potassium 6-titanate in various forms as its main product to be added to brake pads and other friction materials.
We also manufacture other titanates such as sodium 6-titanate and other high-performance products made by improving such titanates for specific applications and purposes of use.
These products are known as the TOFIX series and are used by many customers.

Potassium Titanate


  • Chemical composition

    The chemical composition of TOFIX series is K2O・6TiO2, which has the highest heat resistance among potassium titanates.

  • High braking performance

    TOFIX series has excellent abrasion resistance and stability of μ (coefficient of friction). TOFIX-SNR, in particular, is characterized by both high abrasion resistance and a high coefficient of friction.

Production process

Production processProduction process
  • Features

    While the general production process for potassium titanate is a wet process, we use a completely dry process to achieve a consecutive process for the TOFIX series.

  • Environmentally friendly process

    The TOFIX series is a completely dry process that generates no waste or effluent.
