LANXESS will be showcasing its pigment portfolio bauma 2019 in Munich

April 11/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Specialty chemicals company LANXESS will be showcasing its extensive pigment portfolio for coloring of construction materials together with distributor Harold Scholz & Co. GmbH at the bauma in Munich from April 8 to 14, 2019, said the company.

It is the largest international meeting place and most important multiplier for the industry. Here, LANXESS will showcase its product solutions for sustainable building and its expertise in coloring concrete products. The companys Inorganic Pigments business unit (IPG) is the worlds largest manufacturer of iron oxides and one of the leading producers of inorganic pigments based on chromium oxides.

For decades, Bayferrox iron oxide pigments have been used reliably in all types of concrete materials. However, in more recent years, there have been many advancements in concrete technology. New types of concrete such as self-compacting or ultra-high performance concrete are based on complex formulations, the components of which must be perfectly matched to meet requirements. This must also be kept in mind when iron-oxide pigments are used, says Oliver Fleschentraeger, Market Segment Manager Construction in the Inorganic Pigments (IPG) business unit at LANXESS.

LANXESS has extensive expertise in the production and handling of pigments as well as in the processing in concrete manufacturing. To continue to provide superior support for the technological development of its customers in the future, the company has invested around 1 million Euro in the further modernization of its application laboratories for construction materials at its Krefeld-Uerdingen site in Germany and at Starpointe Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, in the USA.

"The technical service offering comprises extensive analyses regarding the colorimetric and physical pigment characteristics as well as their influence on concrete properties and rheological characteristics in customer-specific applications, which can be simulated under laboratory conditions, explains Fleschentraeger. In addition, we collaborate closely with raw material producers, equipment manufacturers, architects and universities in order to provide the best service for our customers," continues Fleschentraeger.

As MRC reported earlier, in December 2017, Lanxess announced the expansion of its Additives segment and plans to acquire the phosphorus chemicals business with a US production site from Belgian chemical group Solvay. Both companies signed an agreement to this effect.

Lanxess is a leading specialty chemicals company with about 19,200 employees in 25 countries. The company is currently represented at 74 production sites worldwide. The core business of Lanxess is the development, manufacturing and marketing of chemical intermediates, additives, specialty chemicals and plastics. Through Arlanxeo, the joint venture with Saudi Aramco, Lanxess is also a leading supplier of synthetic rubber.
