Press release from: GEORG H. LUH GmbH

The natural mineral called micaceous iron oxide has proved to be a good protection against heavy corrosion for many years, especially and extraordinarily well as a long term protection of objects.
Besides the already well established products of the MIOX-series, suitable for many different applications and formulae, the GEORG H. LUH GmbH now offers a new “FeOMica“- range within their supply portfolio, with excellent technical properties at an extremely competitive price.
Additionally to its excellent corrosion protection properties the new FeOMica-series reacts favourably to UV-protection, mechanical properties and thermal conductivity in coatings. It is also very suitable for effect pigmentation in dark metallic colours.

As a mineral alternative to the toxic, and in many applications already prohibited halogenated flame-retardant, GEORG H. LUH GmbH has been offering expandable graphite as an intumescent flame- retardant additive for many years.
Expandable graphite has proved its value of being an efficient and environmentally friendly flame- retardant additive in many applications e.g. polyurethane foam or in roof sheets. Especially for the application in coatings, the new product “PX 96/1“has been developed with optimal sized particles. It is easily handled and has a very low sedimentation tendency.
Upon request all different types of expandable graphite are available, also in large master batches.

About GEORG H. LUH GmbH:
Founded in 1933, GEORG H. LUH company has gained an outstanding expertise in mineral raw materials, particularly in graphite and mica in their variety. Offering raw material at its best, the product quality is guaranteed by an own well equipped quality laboratory.

Acting as a flame retardant and being free of any halogens expandable graphite is a well settled intumescent builder in many applications nowadays. For instance polyurethane foams or bitumen membranes have been flame protected for many years with expandable graphite. Down to particle sizes of generally 300 – 500 µm it was hardly possible to use this additive in applications such as thin coatings for textiles. Now GEORG H. LUH GmbH provides
