Specialty chemicals company Lanxess has expanded its capacity for black synthetic iron oxide pigments at its Krefeld-Uerdingen site by more than 5,000 metric tons per year. “The increased demand from the construction industry, in particular for our unique black pigments to color concrete, can be even better met with the debottlenecking measures that have now been completed,” says Holger Hüppeler, head of the Inorganic Pigments business unit at Lanxess. The company is thus continuing the systematic expansion of its production capacities for synthetic iron oxide pigments. Lanxess is the only supplier worldwide to produce these pigments using the Laux process.
