Catalysis, Chemical Processing and Chemical Synthesis

Baysolvex® D2EHPA Baysolvex is a versatile and efficient solvent for liquid-liquid extraction processes for separation, purification, enrichment and recovery of metal salts.
Diethylphosphite Diethylphosphite is an intermediate chemical used to make agrochemicals and flame retardants.
Dimethylphosphate Dimethylphosphate is used as a flame retardant for nylon fibers, and as a chemical intermediate in the production of pesticides and in lubricant additives and adhesives.
LANXESS offers with its Disflamoll® range different halogen free flame retardants with excellent compatibility with polar polymers.
Lewatit® TP 208 Lewatit TP 208 is a weekly acidic cation exchange resin for the selective removal of alkaline earth cations.
Lewatit® TP 260 Lewatit® TP 260 is a weakly acidic cation exchange resin for the selective removal of transition heavy metals and alkaline earth cations from alkali chloride brines and other aqueous solutions.
Lewatit® MonoPlus TP 207 Lewatit® TP 207 is a weakly acidic cation exchange resin for the selective extraction of heavy metal cations from weakly acidic to weakly basic aqueous solutions that is widely used in water purification.
Lewatit Monoplus TP 214 Lewatit Monoplus TP-214 is a resin that is used to remove mercury and heavy metals such as gold, silver and palladium from ground water and other aqueous solutions.
Lewatit® MonoPlus SR 7 LEWATIT® MonoPlus SR 7 is a polystyrene based, nitrate selective anion exchange resin used for purification of water and other aqueous solutions.
Mersolat® Mersolat is used as raw material for textile processing chemicals, leather auxiliaries, detergents, cleaning products and as an auxiliary for the manufacture and stabilization of emulsions.
Levagard® products are phosphorous compounds suitable for making non-flammable polyurethane foams, polyester resins, polyurethane cast resins and textile coatings.
Triacetin® Triacetin is a clear, colorless acetate ester used for plasticising synthetic rubber and cellulose derivatives.
Tributylphosphate Tributylphosphate is a very strong solvent used in the production of synthetic resins and natural rubber solutions.
Triisobutylphosphate Triisobutyl phosphate is a very strong solvent used for liquefying concrete, textile auxiliaries, paper coating compounds, etc.

Footwear Industry

Baymod® Baymod® N is a family of powdered nitrile rubbers that are compatible with a number of different polymers and are used as plasticizers.
Krynac® Krynac® is a family of oil-resistant synthetic rubbers manufactured by emulsion polymerization that are widely used in a number of industries, including the automotive industry.
Vulkanol® Vulkanol® synthetic plasticizers are required as active ingredients to adjust the properties of vulcanizates, for example, to reduce hardness, modulus and tensile strength or to increase ultimate elongation and resilience. Vulkanol can be used for the production of upper soles and industrial shoes.
Vulkanox® Antidegradants such as Vulkanox® are chemicals which protect the vulcanizates against damaging external influences. Depending on the chemical structure, they act against one or more of the aging processes mentioned. None of the antidegradants is universally effective, each has a definite spectrum of activity and characteristic effectiveness, and a definite propensity to discolor the goods if they are exposed to light. Staining antidegradants are generally more effective than non-staining ones. Vulkanox can be used for the production of upper soles and industrial shoes.
Zinkoxyd Aktiv LANXESS zinc oxides are precipitated to offer a rather small range of particle size combined with a high surface area. On top these products are characterized by a very low heavy metal content. Zinkoxyd Aktiv can be used for the production of upper soles and industrial shoes.

Inks and Toners

Bayferrox®  synthetic iron oxide pigments are widely used worldwide for coloring all types of concrete products, from ready-mixed concrete to tiles to grout. Of very high quality and rich in color, they are also popular in paints.

Colortherm® synthetic iron oxide pigments have excellent dispersibility and color stability in plastics. They are also very stable at the high temperatures needed for the processing of thermoplastics Colortherm® pigments are REACH-certified and also comply with all EU norms of restriction of  heavy metal components.

Bayscript® is a complete range of water-based dyes for ink-jet printers.
