LANXESS to Offer Colored Concrete Solutions to South Korean Construction Market

LANXESS’ Inorganic Pigment business unit, one among the major producers of iron oxide pigments, along with Wooshin Pigment, a South Korean company, has demonstrated the superior properties of colored concrete obtained by utilizing LANXESS’ Bayferrox pigments at the 4th Colored Concrete Works Forum.

4th Colored Concrete Works Forum

LANXESS, a major specialty chemicals company, has conducted the forum in June 23, 2011 at Grand Hyatt located in Seoul, South Korea. The company has also presented the benefits of chrome oxide and iron oxide pigments.

Bayferrox pigments offer a natural warm color to the concrete material, making it a growing trend in the modernized concrete architecture in South Korea. LANXESS’ Bayferrox inorganic iron oxide pigments complement the trend by offering superior tinting strength, color consistency and weather resistance.

According to Dr. Wolfgang Oehlert, who serves as VP of the Inorganic Pigment business unit for Asia Pacific at LANXESS, the choice of Seoul as the first Asian location for the Colored Concrete Works Forum explains the significance of the Asian markets, particularly the South Korean market. The company will offer colored concrete’s sustainable technical expertise and tailored solutions to South Korea’s rapidly modernizing and expanding architectural culture.

At the forum, LANXESS’ Head of the Global Competence Center Construction, Lutz Kohnert explained the technical uses of Bayferrox pigment and its ability to serve as an efficient solution for coloring the concrete. He demonstrated the aesthetic appeal of colored concrete with examples across the world, including Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi, New Astra Bridge in Stockholm in Sweden and Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
