Our strengths are functional fillers for the plastics industry and high-quality raw materials for technical ceramics
Nabaltec supplies specialized markets all over the world. Our export share amounts to approximately 70%. We are leaders in our markets and our innovative force, which has won us several awards, promotes progress. Know-how, experience and the implementation of complex processes are the basis for prime quality and highly specialized products for many applications. Our special strengths are a number of functional fillers for the plastics industry and high-quality, specialized raw materials for technical ceramics, always featuring invariably high premium quality and designed for absolutely specific requirements. That is why our customers appreciate us. And thus, we remain the quality leader in our target markets.
We offer basic materials for state-of-the-art applications
Our functional fillers are added to plastics to enable them to meet ever higher requirements as regards safety, environmental compatibility and processability. These enhance the properties of compounds decisively to their advantage. Our non-halogenated, flame-retardant fillers for example are used for cables in tunnels or airports, in skyscrapers or for data processing and the insulating materials industry.
We represent innovation which promotes progress
Our specialized raw materials for technical ceramics stand for innovation which in turn promotes progress. These ceramic raw materials are used, for example, in the refractory industry or in the production of friction liners for brakes. Machine parts, spark plugs, high-voltage insulators, mill liners, grinding media and other technical and bio-ceramic components are also produced with ceramic raw materials made by Nabaltec. The polishing industry appreciates the special properties of Nabaltec's polishing oxides. Our ceramic bodies are granulates with very special properties. They are produced for a wide range of applications or manufactured according to our customers' special requirements.
This is how we have made a name for ourselves
The users of Nabaltec products benefit from processing features which enhance economic efficiency long-term. Our Sales Department offers a highly qualified technical consultancy service. We pursue development in all areas in close cooperation with our customers, and optimize the possible applications and the qualities of the products. This close contact helps us recognize trends at an early stage. We continue to develop processes and products constantly, which we adapt to our customers' changing requirements. This is one of our special strengths: We call it "integrated marketing". And this is how we have made a name for ourselves.
Our basis are mineral raw materials
In Germany, we operate production plants in Schwandorf and Kelheim. With Nashtec, our Joint Venture with Sherwin Alumina, in Corpus Christi, Texas, we also have a production site in the USA. From here, we can supply especially customers in America and Asia even more efficiently. In the USA, our production focuses on the non-halogenated, flame-retardant filler brand APYRAL® 40CD in the same quality as in Schwandorf, thus offering our customers the reliability of two production sites. The high degree of automation secures the consistently high product quality in Germany and at Nashtec. Our basis are mineral raw materials; expansion is our goal; quality and cost-efficiency are the keys to our success with our customers.
Experience is our asset
We advise our customers extensively as regards the processing of our products and in addition, we are able to perform analyses and testing services as required. Thanks to its state-of-the-art equipment, our Laboratory offers a great variety of chemical and physical analyses. Our special quality and strong performance are also backed by our certification in accordance with ISO 9001, ISO 14001, EN 16001, BS OHSAS 18001 and our accreditation in accordance with DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025. Here, too, experience is also our asset and the basis for reliable performance for others.
Our products are as successful as our staff
Being a future-oriented company, Nabaltec relies on training and staff development. For us, this is concern and commitment alike. This is one of the reasons why our trainees regularly count among the best of their peers. Our products are as successful as our staff, and their high degree of commitment benefits our customers. For this reason, Nabaltec was named as being one of the best medium-sized employers in 2006, 2008 and 2012 within the scope of the Germany-wide comparative study “TOP JOB”.
Environmental protection is one of our core concerns
Our special non-halogenated flame-retardant fillers not only delay and prevent the propagation of fire. They also prevent the release of environmentally harmful gases noxious to health which may occur in case of fire in conjunction with other, so-called halogenated compounds. None of our products contains harmful substances, thus they do not have to be disposed of separately. This is something we are proud of.
