    Lohtragon® : High Performance Metal Salts for Industrial Applications

    Last updated:

    The Lohtragon® brand leverages over 135 years of manufacturing expertise from Dr. Paul Lohmann® and targets to meet the specific requirements of industrial markets, such as:

    • Polymer Additives
    • Energy
    • Surface Treatments
    • Construction Chemicals
    • Chemical Synthesis
    • Glass, Ceramics & Pigments
    • Cross-applications
    • And further Special Applications

    The Lohtragon® portfolio consists of roughly 60 metal salts. These products are the starting point for individual product optimizations with regard to chemical and physical parameters and nearly endless options for new combinations, both based on specific customer needs.

    Polymer Additives

    The manufacturing of plastics and polymer materials along the polymer value chain is facing steadily increasing technical requirements while fulfilling health, safety & environment standards.

    (1) Lohtragon® polymer additives are predominantly focusing on the polymer-compounding step in order to achieve extra functionalities and improved performances:

    • Optimum durability against internal degradationMetal Salts and its Function in Polymers
    • Improved resistance against outside influences
    • Appearance enhancement
    • And specific other properties like light-weight, odor control, …

    (2) The Lohtragon® polymer additives can for example act as:

    • Acid Scavengers
    • Antistatic Additives
    • Antioxidants / Light Stabilizers
    • Nucleating and Clarifying Agents
    • Blowing Agents
    • Crosslinking Agents

     

    Iron, copper and manganese salts are used during production itself for redox-initiated free radical polymerization.

    Other polymerization reactions, such as that of styrene, require various metal salts as buffers, stabilizers or acid scavengers. The use of calcium and magnesium citrates is particularly common here. For the emulsion polymerization of latex, salts such as calcium or magnesium nitrates or calcium acetate are used in coagulation solution processes. They play an important role as coagulants or de-emulsifiers.

    Metal salts of aluminum can also be applied to stabilize the three-dimensional macrostructures of suitable polymers.

    Polymeric foams such as polyethylene require a blowing agent that releases the gases which ultimately cause the polymer to foam. Suitable product for an endothermic supply of harmless carbon dioxide are citrates.

    Also metal salts are employed in further processing of plastics. As efficient insulators, plastics often become electrostatically charged. During deliberate charging with corona wire, as in the production of polyester film, the use of magnesium salts as an additive can prevent unwanted electrostatic charging, or the electrostatic characteristics of the surface can be adapted as required.

     

    Metal salt competences

    New brand launch of Dr. Paul Lohmann® – Lohtragon® for dedicated metal salt competences.

    Our partner Dr. Paul Lohmann GmbH & Co. KGaA synergizes its high performance metal salt range for industrial applications under the new Lohtragon® brand. Lohtragon® will be established as the first choice for metal salt competence in the industrial market environment.

    Lohtragon® stands for unique competences in manufacturing, optimizing and developing metal salts, providing solutions for various customer challenges. The brand leverages the Dr. Paul Lohmann® manufacturing expertise of over 135 years and is designed to meet the specific requirements for industrial market segments.

    The Lohtragon® portfolio consists of roughly 60 metal salts. These products are the starting point for individual product optimizations with regard to chemical and physical parameters and nearly endless options for new combinations, both based on specific customer needs. For existing customers, their established product qualities remain fully available.
