From metal to glass and even leather, we provide surface treatment products for all types of materials.

Solvay creates ingredients and formulated products that modify and clean the surface of a variety of metallic as well as organic substrates, improving the performance of the finished articles and enhancing their shelf life. The properties our products provide include corrosion resistance, improved lubrication and enhanced effectiveness of metal working fluid concentrates.

For exemple, inorganic fluorides are used for etching and cleaning applications for glass, stainless steel and non-ferrous metal pieces. We also provide solvents that improve the HSE profile and reduce the odour of leather finishing formulations.
