Lanxess is showcasing its eco-friendly pigments and biocides at its booth E2E51-56 at CHINACOAT 2009. According to market studies, Asia Pacific is already the largest market for paints and coatings. In 2009, despite the economic crisis, the markets in China and India have stayed resilient. Looking ahead, steady growth has been projected for the region, where several countries currently have low paint consumption per capita. A demand shift toward green products has also been predicted.

Lanxess' green solutions for coating industry from its inorganic pigments (IPG) business unit of include the Bayferrox, Colortherm and Chrome Oxide Green product lines. These products feature light-fastness, weather stability and chemical resistance as well as high quality, standards-compliant and environmentally compatible processing.

Lanxess' material protection products (MPP) business unit also offers a range of ecologically friendly biocides—under the Preventol brand—to protect paints and coatings from attacks by microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi and algae.

“As more and more Asian countries undertake initiatives to lower emissions, stricter environmental standards will be introduced," said Dr. Wolfgang Oehlert, head of Lanxess' IPG business unit in Asia Pacific.

In China, IPG operates two state-of-the-art facilities in Shanghai: one plant in Jinshan produces yellow iron oxide pigments and another in Taopu further processes the world renowned Bayferrox product line. The MPP business unit has production facilities in China and India. It recently expanded its plant in India, so as to more than double the plant’s monthly production capacity. The business unit also operates two microbiology testing laboratories in Singapore and China.
