This step substantially strengthens Heubach's position not only in North America but globally as well as part of the planned growth strategy.

Production will start at the end of 2017

"Production of anticorrosive pigments at Heucotech, our US 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," says Birgit Genn, Executive Vice President of Heubach GmbH to explain the further investment of the Heubach Group.

Extensive portfolio of anticorrosive pigments

As largest manufacturer of anticorrosives, Heubach offers an extensive portfolio of specialty pigments. Besides the classic zinc phosphate, the company 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 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.
