I do not think Observer the OP should leave his thread, any disagreement's should be kept low key and a civil discussion on all party's should take place, sometimes opinion's will remain divided that is just the way it is and will always be and we should respect one another's views on occasion's like that.
Personally I hate all the politics even though I find myself commenting on them and it was posts like yours that originally brought me here, the worst thing that could ever happen to the site is for such post's to stop.
So it look's like it may be a legit image
Solid, shaped and fired refractory articles, such as fibers and microspheres, of titanium dioxide are made by shaping, gelling, and firing titania sols. Said fibers can be made by extruding in air a viscous aqueous titania sol, and heating and firing the resulting green fiber to remove water, decompose and volatilize undesired constituents, and form a refractory fiber of polycrystalline titanium dioxide, which is useful, for example, to form refractory fabrics or as reinforcement for composites. Said microspheres can be made by dispersing droplets of an aqueous titania sol in an organic dehydrating liquid, separating the resulting green microspheres from the dehydrating liquid, and heating and firing the green microspheres to form solid refractory microspheres of polycrystalline titanium dioxide, which are useful, for example, in reflective signs or traffic marking surfaces. Said fired fibers and microspheres are preferably transparent to visible light with the titanium dioxide content thereof in its anatase form.
