"Production of anticorrosive pigments at Heucotech, our U.S. location near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania is set to commence at the end of 2017. The goal of this expansion is to be able to meet our increased global demand for high-quality and, in particular, zinc-free anticorrosives. But above all, this investment should also ensure that we satisfy the local needs and requirements of our customers in North, South, and Central America to the fullest," said Birgit Genn, executive vice president of Heubach GmbH to explain the further investment of the Heubach Group.
Heubach offers an extensive portfolio of anticorrosive pigments. Besides the classic zinc phosphate, Heubach also markets orthophosphate and polyphosphates modified with zinc and/or other substances. These are offered under the brand name HEUCOPHOS, and the HEUCOSIL products, which were developed on the basis of calcium-modified silica. A very specific organic corrosion inhibitor with the name HEUCORIN, is used in combination with inorganic anticorrosive pigments as a synergist and significantly improves performance in various applications.
With its many years of experience and application laboratories at various locations, Heubach supports customers in selecting the appropriate anticorrosive pigment in order to ensure that the performance of the pigments are maximized in the various applications.
