Chemicals for the Metal Treatment Industry
Customers from the metal treatment, galvanising and electroplating industry make use of our extensive range of chemicals, alloys and equipment like furnaces, kettles and crane systems from top quality suppliers. Without metal finishing, many products made from metal would only last a fraction of their current lifespan. Due to special steel composition of the kettles and unique manufacturing methods, the kettles manufactured by W. Pilling Kesselfabrik GmbH & Co. KG are extremely long lasting which reduces the downtime in galvanising plants and increase their output.
Furthermore, our pre- and post-treatment chemicals and alloys from Dipl.-Ing. Herwig GmbH help galvanising plants to reduce the zinc pickup to lower their production costs and improve the appearance of the zinc coating at the same time. Herwig’s portfolio includes degreasers, inhibitors, fluxes, special alloys as well as nickel and zinc rust protectors.

Extending the Life of Metals
Mining & Mixing
Raw materials like iron ore or zinc for the processing of metal as well as precious metals like gold can be found in the ground, mountains or even sea. Depending on the place and ore, various kinds of methods to extract iron or gold ore from the actual mine can require most modern equipment and technologies.
Hot Dip Galvanising
Hot Dip Galvanising involves submerging steel or iron into a 450° C zinc bath following appropriate pre-treatment of the steel. The zinc layer protects steel and iron from corrosion in an economical and environmentally friendly way. The galvanised steel is protected not only from wind and weather but also resistant to mechanical stress.
Electroplating is achieved by passing an electric current through a solution containing dissolved metal ions and the metal object to be plated. Electroplating is primarily used to change an object’s surface properties.
