Material Protection Products

All-round protection

Products from our Material Protection Products business unit (MPP) are used practically everywhere in the world in a wide array of applications. With our broad portfolio of antimicrobial active ingredients and preservatives, we deliver customized solutions for nearly every industrial sector – particularly the wood protection industry, the paint and coatings industry and the construction sector, as well as the disinfection and food industries.

We provide comprehensive technical service, registration support and project-specific research and development. Production facilities in Germany, China, India and the United States, as well as several service centers, an international distribution network and global customer service, mean that material protection is in our safe hands.

Globally proven

Our product portfolio contains reliable biocides and biocidal formulations for numerous applications. We are a lead¬ing manufacturer of active ingredients for wood protection products: Our fungicides and insecticides are essential components of some well-known protective coatings for wood. Furthermore, we supply active ingredients for surface disinfection, e.g., in hospitals, public places and in animal husbandry.

Innovative and flexible

Another key application for our products involves the preservation of diverse materials, such as water-based coatings, plaster, mortar, glues, adhesives and paper and emulsions and slurries. We offer a comprehensive range of formulations that comply with both technical and regulatory requirements.

Our Velcorin® brand provides a technology for microbial control used in many non-alcoholic beverages and wine.

Toxicity and ecotoxicity-tested

Material protection products are subject to strict approval processes in many countries and regions. The safety of the active ingredients, of the products that customers use them in, of our employees, and of the environment are all high-priority objectives for us.

We provide toxicity and ecotoxicity-tested and officially registered products with all necessary national registrations in many countries and regions, e.g., in the EU and the United States. Our regulatory experts are actively involved in industry associations and are in close contact with registration authorities, thus ensuring a reliable regulatory framework for our customers´ registrations.
