The Inorganic Pigments business unit (IPG) offers a range of iron oxide and chromium oxide pigments distinguished by their excellent quality and sustainable processing properties.
Color for life
Bayferrox® and Colortherm® pigments have been setting standards for decades. They are available in more than 100 different shades of red, yellow, green, brown and black. In addition to standard applications such as house paint and tinting for paving stones, our pigments are used in exposed concrete, infrared reflecting coatings, artificial grass and wood-plastic composites. These pigments deliver outstanding light fastness, weather stability and chemical resistance.
Available in powder, granulate, compact or liquid pigment form, IPG’s products also include special micronized pigments for high-dispersal requirements, as well as the highly purified Z-grade pigment range for cosmetic applications.
Bayferrox® granules permit dust-free and automated dosing of pigments for tinting all construction materials, including the exposed concrete used in many modern public buildings.
Paints and coatings
Special high-performance iron oxide yellow pigments enable the formulation of low-viscosity pigment preparations as required by the pastes industry. In addition to excellent working properties, they can enhance operational efficiency.
Chemicals from our Material Protection Products business unit (MPP) are used practically everywhere in the world in a broad array of applications, ranging from active ingredients in antimicrobial and insecticidal products to preservatives. We deliver custom solutions for nearly every industrial sector – particularly the wood protection industry, the paint and coatings industry, the construction sector, health and personal care products manufacturers and the food industry. We provide comprehensive advice, registration management
and project-specific research and development services. Production facilities in Germany, China, India and the United States, plus several service centers, an international distribution network and a global customer service organization, provide our customers with the assurance that materialprotection is in our safe hands.
The Preventol® product range is made up of demonstrably effective microbicides for diverse disinfection applications. These include uses as active ingredients for instrument and surface disinfection in hospitals or for animal husbandry. The MPP is also a leading manufacturer of active ingredients for wood-protection products, and its Preventol® fungicides and insecticides are essential components of some wellknown protective coatings for wood.
Innovative and flexible
Another key application for our products involves the preservation of diverse materials, including water-based coatings, plaster and mortar, compounders, glues and adhesives, and
emulsions and slurries. We offer a comprehensive range of formulations that comply with both technical and regulatory requirements.
Toxicity and ecotoxicity-tested
Material protection products are subject to strict licensing requirements in many countries and regions. The safety of the active ingredients and the products that customers use them in, employee health and safety, and environmental protection are all high-priority objectives for us. We provide toxicity and ecotoxicity-tested and officially approved products accompanied by comprehensive product data sheets. Our registration experts are actively involved in trade association committees and maintain close contacts with registration authorities, ensuring a reliable regulatory framework for customer registrations and clearances.
