Chemetall strengthens Aerospace business by acquiring DINOL corrosion inhibiting compounds
Chemetall GmbH, Frankfurt/M. has acquired the aviation business of the Swedish DINOL AB, Hässleholm as per 1. July 2001.
The take-over includes the complete product line of DINOL’s corrosion inhibiting compounds (CIC) used for the protection of aerospace metals and alloys within aircraft structures. The Dinitrol® brand of aerospace products is recognised as the technology and market leader throughout the world for this niche market. These products deliver outstanding performance throughout the aviation industry and are approved by all major aircraft manufacturers and airline companies.
The CICs will be incorporated into the Aerospace Technologies Division of Chemetall’s Surface Treatment business and will complement Chemetall’s existing product line of Ardrox®, Oakite® and Naftoseal® products that are already recognised globally as brand leaders throughout the aviation industry for maintenance, cleaning, pre-treatment, non-destructive testing and sealing.
This significant acquisition further enhances the product portfolio of the Frankfurt/M. based specialty chemicals company. Chemetall’s wide product range offers a single source option for its aviation and aerospace customers thus enabling them to purchase most of their specialty chemical needs from one competent partner.
DINOL to focus on the automotive aftermarket
The sale of the aviation business allows DINOL to focus its resources on its core business within the automotive market, thereby further developing its market position in the area of Bonding, Coating and Sealing applications for vehicle repair.
DINOL AB is part of the Swiss EMS-CHEMIE HOLDING AG; Chemetall is a subsidiary of Dynamit Nobel AG, Troisdorf, the chemical group of mg technologies AG, Frankfurt.
