CalciPro® cored wire is an established Calcium-treatment technology for inclusion modification to improve castability and to optimize material properties in commercial steel plants.

Calcium Carbide is well known as an effective desulfurization agent for hot metal in modern economic steel production. In addition, Calcium Carbide can also be used for liquid steel desulfurization.

Dormex® - new registration on blueberries in Peru

Growing blueberries in the tropics is a big challenge. The plants do not get dormant and the lack of chill leads to an uneven and weak bud break.

Dormex® is the solution for such climatic conditions. This plant growth regulator manufactured by AlzChem was recently registered in Peru for improving the bud break of blueberries. The use of Dormex® is also registered in other major blueberries producing countries like USA and Chile.

Our contribution for the availability of medicine essential for life

Triethylsilane is used as reagent for reduction or catalytic hydrosilylation in the synthesis for new as well as established pharmaceutical actives medication. A catalytic hydrosilylation is a very gentle and selective addition reaction of a silicon-hydrogen bond to a carbon double bond. This enables the synthesis of molecules, that would otherwise not be accessible or only by costly indirect pathways. In comparison to other reagents for catalytic hydrosilylation, triethylsilane is easy to handle and can be obtained in high purity relevant to the pharma industry.
