Lehvoss June 2019 Press Release


NEOLITH – Dispersion powders for the construction industry

Since January 2019, Lehmann&Voss &Co. has extended its existing portfolio by adding polymeric dispersion powders of the Italian producer F.A.R. Polymers. These products are available in the UK and in Germany.

The powders are based on vinyl copolymers, which are produced by a spray-drying process. They can be used in various applications in the construction industry such as mortars, gypsum fillers or tile adhesives. In the formulations the NEOLITH grades offer excellent processing properties, an improved adhesion on substrates, good abrasion resistance as well as resistance to water and long-term durability.

Special grades of NEOLITH have an additional positive influence on the processing of the formulations and create improved thixotropic properties.

Lehmann & Voss & Co. takes over the Osthoff Omega Group

With effect from January 1st, 2019, Lehmann&Voss&Co. took over the business operations of the Osthoff Omega Group, Norderstedt, Germany.

With a leading market position in the field of functional and lightweight fillers, Lehmann&Voss&Co has been able to complement its portfolio with the following product ranges, which are now available through LEHVOSS UK:

WOLLATROP® – inorganic rheology modifiers

With the WOLLATROP® product range Lehmann&Voss&Co. offers a series of multifunctional inorganic thickeners. The use of WOLLATROP® leads to advantages in processing, stability and the rheology in water-based, solvent-based or solvent-free systems.

OMEGA-SIL solid microspheres, universally applicable ceramic solid spheres

OMEGA-SIL products are a series of functional fillers which are suitable for a wide range of applications. OMEGA-SIL contributes to an increase of surface hardness of coated surfaces and improves the resistance of concrete to chemical exposure.

OMEGA-SPHERES, THERMO-SPHERES – Hollow microspheres, universally applicable ceramic hollow spheres

With the products OMEGA-SPHERES® and THERMO-SPHERES Lehmann&Voss&Co. extends its range of hollow microspheres. The inert ceramic hollow microspheres can optimize mechanical and thermal properties of the formulations.

TRI-SPHERES – universally applicable ceramic multicellular hollow spheres

The TRI-SPHERES series includes multicellular inorganic hollow spheres, which can be used in diverse applications and in many different formulation types. This product range can be customized in respect to particle size distribution, strength, density and can therefore be adjusted to most needs of the developer.

LITHO-BUBBLES – universally applicable ceramic foam

With the line extension LITHO-BUBBLES Lehmann&Voss&Co offers a new series of ceramic foam which can be applied universally in solvent borne or waterborne systems. The range of LITHO-BUBBLES includes different particle sizes and hydrophobic types for individual usage to adjust thermal and mechanical properties.

HOP-BASALT – universally applicable reinforcement fibres

HOP-BASALT offers a vast range of products including filaments, fabrics, fleeces, chopped fibres and rebars for reinforcing application of many systems. This includes a huge number of varieties of coatings and finishes.

HOP-MIX – micro glass fibre

HOP-MIX are micro glass fibre additives. The ultrafine fibres permit the control of rheological properties, as well as a micro-reinforcement. HOP-MIX is suitable for a wide application spectrum. The fibres are cut to a defined length. The material is non-treated, free of binders and other additives.
