The Old Holland safety data sheet for their zinc white oil paint lists alongside 70-90% zinc oxide. 3-5% titanium dioxide. Which strikes me as an interestingly odd thing to do. Would there be any advantage to adding such a small amount of titanium white to an otherwise pure zinc white paint?

Probably to add a bit of opacity to an otherwise rather
transparent/translucent white oil paint. Titanium white is substantially more opaque
than lead white, let alone zinc white.
