Chemetall completes expansion of its production site in Germany
The Surface Treatment global business unit of BASF’s Coatings division, operating under the Chemetall brand, has inaugurated a new laboratory and office building in Langelsheim, Germany.
This completes the expansion of the production site in Lower Saxony which focuses on the development and production of aerospace technologies. To cover the increasing requirements of the market, the production of aircraft sealants was also expanded. Langelsheim is one of the largest and most versatile Chemetall production facilities globally. The project is the brand’s largest single investment in the former Hans-Heinrich-Hütte.
Technologies for the aviation industry
The 180 on-site employees support the production of aircraft sealing compounds, anti-corrosive agents, cleaning products and other chemicals for surface treatment. The manufactured and supplied aircraft sealants are internationally accredited through NADCAP (National Aerospace and Defense Contractors Accreditation Program), the global aerospace industry cooperation program for controlling and reviewing compliance in terms of quality control.
