Süd-Chemie acquires Hi-Tech

By Gerald Ondrey |

In the course of the closing end of December 2008, Süd-Chemie AG (Munich, Germany; www.sud-chemie.com) has acqured the ceramics filter business, which operates under the name of Hi-Tech, of the Cookson Group Plc. (London). Hi-Tec (Alfred Station, N.Y.) develops and produces fully sintered, reticulated ceramic filters based on zircona and alumina, for demanding applications in the foundry industry, particularly for investment casting, steel casting and iron-large casting for more than 25 years. Such filters lower the defect and rejection rates in foundry processes by removing impurities from molten metal, for example. With this expansion of its product portfolio, Süd-Chemie strengthens its market position for foundry chemicals. The purchase price has not been disclosed.
