Products and applications
Products and applications
ENERGY STORAGE DEVICES
For many years, Treibacher has a been a globally established producer of titanium-manganese-based (AB2) hydrogen storage alloys on an industrial scale with consistently high product quality. This high-performance solid-state storage material is characterized by a long lifetime, reversible storage capacities at ambient temperature (discharging) and exceptionally fast charging and discharging processes.
PAINTS / COATINGS / PIGMENTS
We come across rare earths, zirconium and vanadium chemicals in many everyday products. Their use ranges from manufacturing pigments for tiles and glazes to producing paints and coatings, and special luminescent materials which are used in turn in safety features. Our zirconium chemicals are additionally used in the production of printing inks, in leather tanning and in the paper industry.
With our rare earth materials, we provide optimum materials for both producing (glass melting) and processing glass (polishing). Our rare earth oxides, for example, are used to colour and decolourize glasses, bottles, flacons or gemstones. Our portfolio also includes the right product for UV protection.
In the glass processing sector, we focus on cerium oxide-based polishing agents which we market under the brand name Auerpol®.
CARBIDE AND TUNGSTEN SEMI-FINISHED PRODUCTS INDUSTRY
Our product range for the carbide industry includes both high-quality hard materials (carbides, nitrides, cabonitrides) in powder form and tungsten metal powders for the tungsten semi-finished products industry.
Our rare earth, yttrium and zirconium-based high-performance ceramic materials are used in very demanding applications. Whether for technical (AuerTec®) applications, bio- and dental ceramics (AuerDent®), the aviation (AuerCoat®) and semiconductor industry or precision casting for titanium – our consistently high product quality and customized development work are impressive.
Rare earths and vanadium chemicals are an essential raw material for the production of catalysts for various applications. Our products are used as process catalysts and also in environmental catalysts (Auernox®).
Our heat stabilizers (AuerStab®) for silicone rubber, polyamide and polyester provide the perfect solution to the constantly increasing demands on the durability of technical plastics. Our halogen- and halide-free Auerstab masterbatches are environmentally friendly and prevent the formation of corrosion in various engineering plastics applications.
We offer a wide range of zirconium and rare earth compounds for use in pharmaceutical applications. Our inorganic materials are used, among other things, in MRI contrast agents, phosphate binder and potassium scavenger drugs in the human and veterinary medicine sectors.
Treibacher Industrie AG has more than 40 years’ experience and expertise in the recovery and recycling of metal-bearing residues. For two decades, our main focus has been on recycling catalysts from the European petroleum industry to recover valuable materials (V, Ni, Mo).
STEEL / METALLURGY / FOUNDRY
In the metals and alloys sectors, we can look back on decades of experience. Our ferroalloys (FeV, FeMo, FeNiMo) and rare earth metals are used in the international steel and foundry industries. We focus particularly on the production of special grades.
In the water treatment sector, we provide materials for the globally affordable removal of toxic arsenic from drinking water (NXT®), as well as high-quality lanthanum compounds for phosphate removal from swimming pools and wastewater systems.
As a pioneer in the production of flints, we are committed to the legacy of our company founder and inventor of the flint, Dr. Carl Auer von Welsbach. As a result, our products are still the international benchmark for quality and functionality today – a fact that our prestigious customers greatly appreciate.
