Fine Chemicals

Starting with the very basics – coal, limestone and air we build up a broad and comprehensive product portfolio. With our approach and these simple raw materials, we provide a dependable supply of products based on calcium carbide, calcium cyanamide, hydrogen cyanamide, dicyandiamide, guanidine, guanamines and nitroguanidine. In addition, our multi-nitrile plant offers a wide range of aromatic and aliphatic nitriles for many diverse applications.

A full range of fine and specialty chemicals are manufactured in our dedicated and multi-purpose facilities.
