The site in Leverkusen accounts for just one of Nouryon's eight chemical production sites in Germany. Each one of these sites produces specialty chemicals that are used by our industrial customers. Leverkusen is one of two German sites that produce silica sol and its derivatives (Levasil®) for the "Pulp and Performance Chemicals" business unit. Our customers in the semiconductor and chemical industries include production companies that are primarily internationally oriented.
Silica sol is a colloidally dispersed solution of amorphous silica in water and is used in numerous industry sectors, both as a raw material in large quantities as well as an essential additive in specific applications. Major industrial sectors include the foundry and steel industry, the refractory industry, the construction industry, the paper industry, the dental industry, the chemical industry, the textile industry, and the semiconductor industry; use is also applied in beverage clarification as well as in coating systems. In the applications mentioned above, silica sol is used as a binding agent, as a flocculant in colloidal chemical reactions, as a polishing agent for various substrates, e.g., silicon wafers, and for surface modification. Products are manufactured and supplied with concentrations of up to 50% of SiO2, depending on the type.
