TIB KAT® – a worldwide high-quality catalyst trademark

The requirements placed upon modern catalysts are getting ever more complex in all fields of application. Catalysts are not only to make possible a specific reaction profile for the various applications but also meet low-toxicity and ecological specifications.

In order to meet all these standards, TIB Chemicals always develops its TIB KAT® products further. In close cooperation with our customers we prepare very individual, customised solutions to meet the respective standards. Here, we benefit from our many years of experience with all the raw materials, production processes and conditions of use and our knowledge of the latest developments of knew formulations. TIB KAT® has now become a real high-quality special catalyst trademark on a global scale.

TIB Chemicals always rises to this challenge – again and again. We want to remain our customers’ contact when it comes to the development of catalysts for very special applications and to adapt them to the ever changing market conditions.

Heterogeneous catalysis is a form of catalysis in which the catalyst and the reacting substances of a chemical reaction are present in different phases, for example as gas and solid or as immiscible liquids. Almost all chemical products have come into contact with a heterogeneous catalyst at some point. TIB Chemicals has developed a range of heterogeneous catalysts based on the precious metals palladium (CAS 7440-05-3) and platinum (CAS 7440-06-4). Activated carbon serves as the catalyst carrier. These powder catalysts show high catalytic activity in the hydrogenation of alkenes, aldehydes, ketones, nitriles or nitro compounds. They are also used to remove protecting groups such as the Cbz protecting group through hydrogenolysis.

TIB KAT® products are primarily used for:

  • Oleo chemistry
  • Binders
  • Paints and coatings
  • Adhesives and sealing materials
  • Polymer processing
  • Heterogeneous catalysis
