Technical Oxides

For technical applications, LANXESS offers the comprehensive Bayoxide® E range of pigments that have been developed for very diverse markets, industries and requirements.

With these products, color plays no role to chemico-physical properties such as purity, hardness, reactivity or magnetism.

Our technical oxides are used in a number of diverse applications including toners for laser printers and copiers, in biogas desulfurization, in batteries, brake pads and air bags as well as in refractory products and ceramic pigments.

The Technical Service Staff  for Technical Oxides supports our customers with the optimization
of their technical oxides and the resolution of specific issues. The service works with LANXESS Research to develop tailored oxides satisfying the specific needs of individual customers, and new areas of application are developed in close collaboration with partner companies.

Year on year we develop solutions together with our partners worldwide in which our Bayoxide® pigments help the users to design the optimum end-products for their markets. This would not be possible without a network of experts at LANXESS that understand and speak the customer’s language.

Amongst the tasks of the Technical Service for Technical Oxides is the discovery and development of totally new application areas, giving support to research establishments & institutes, the membership of various technical associations and participation at various congresses.
