In the first quarter of 2021, the official start of a new HPF production plant for high-performance fillers will take place in Dangjin, South Korea. The investment underlines the growth course of the innovative Quarzwerke division HPF The Mineral Engineers in Asia.

After the Quarzwerke Group has long had more than 30 production sites in Europe, the leap to Asia will succeed in 2021. A world-class production plant with the latest technology and the highest safety and sustainability requirements was built in Dangjin City. The wholly owned subsidiary HPF Minerals Tech Ltd. was founded for this purpose. Ultra-modern aggregates for processing mineral raw materials are available in different sizes. Minerals can be crushed and surface modified from the millimetre to the few hundred nanometre range. After successful test productions, the new plant will be officially go operational in the first quarter of 2021 in order to meet the growing demand for innovative filler solutions.

HPF expertise now also in Asia

The surface treatment of mineral fillers with silane-based compounds specially adapted to the customer's polymer optimally exploits the positive properties of the inorganic filler. Grades of the well-known SILBOND® and TREMIN® product series, among others, which have been tried and tested for decades, will in future also be produced in South Korea in consistent quality. In addition to silanised products, uncoated mineral flours and products with optimised particle size distributions for higher filling grades round off the production range.

"We are very pleased that production can start on schedule. We want to support our customers in their success with innovative products. Dangjin City is the perfect location to serve the increasing demand of various growth industries throughout Asia and to expand our local business relationships," said Dr. Jörg Ulrich Zilles, Head of HPF Division.
