Nitroguanidine

Nitroguanidine, also the namesake for AlzChem’s subsidiary Nigu Chemie GmbH, has been produced at our Waldkraiburg site for more than 50 years.

Our backward integrated supply chain offers reliability and a high security of supply. The key raw material, guanidine nitrate, as well as all other precursors are produced in nearby AlzChem plants also located in Germany.

High product quality is thereby guaranteed by consistent quality control and careful selection of raw materials along the entire in-house supply chain.

Main applications are modern plant protection agents and propellants, for instance for airbags and seat belt pretension systems.

Nitroguanidine is offered in a variety of grades, tailored to the customer’s needs:

  • Purity > 99 %
  • Wetted and dry material
  • Various particle sizes from fine to coarse
  • LBD („Low Bulk Density“) and HBD („High Bulk Density“)

A prime example of this are our Melflock® products, which are mostly used as flocculants in the paper and water treatment industries. Because of the backward integration of our most important raw material ‘Dicyandiamide’ we can ensure the availability of all our Melflock® products. The diligent work of our customer service and logistic department is the reason why we can keep up with regular delivery times within Europe, whereas the European transport market itself is running into trouble...

Trostberg. Amidines are organic chemical compounds with an NCN structure, meaning a typical nitrogen-carbon-nitrogen sequence. These types of chemicals are one of AlzChem’s core competencies. NCN structures are contained in many biologically active molecules, which is why a general new synthesis method is so important to the development and production of active ingredients in pharmaceuticals and crop protection. Amidines to this point have been difficult to synthesize, particularly without...

Based on its expertise and the long tradition of calcium carbide and calcium cyanamide production AlzChem continues to be the leading manufacturer of cyanamide and its derivatives. Cyanamide can be used as an amidinating reagent for practically every amine. If cyanamide proves to be too unreactive for a reaction then AlzChem also offers suitable solutions for this, e.g. in the form of the derivative chloroformamidine hydrochloride. Cyanamid and its derivatives represent valuable N=C=N...

Thiourea is a key raw material for a wide variety of applications and industries. As an established global partner of the chemical industry, AlzChem is the only supplier of thiourea outside of Asia and is a REACH lead registrar. Confirmation of REACH registration must be available by June 1, 2018, for distribution within the European Union. In the EU, REACH registration is one good reason to buy AlzChem’s thiourea, but it’s by no means the only one. AlzChem quickly and reliably supplies...
