About Chemetall

As one of the leading global players we are familiar with Surface Treatment in all its facets. Quality products and services are the prerequisite for our successful business. However, at Chemetall, we know that it takes more than that to be a preferred global supplier.

The chemical treatment of metal surfaces is our core competence. Like no other company, we focus our worldwide activities on the development and implementation of customized technology and system solutions for Surface Treatment. Our products are developed for cleaning, giving corrosion protection, sealing, improving paint adhesion, and facilitating the forming and treatment of metals. Our globally established product ranges, for example Oxsilan®, Gardobond®, Ardrox® and Naftoseal®, are used in the most diverse industry sectors from automotive to aerospace, and have played a leading role in shaping metal treatment.


In focus: value added for customers

Good products and quality service is the prerequisite for our successful business. However, we believe that true success lies in a close and partnership-based cooperation with our customers. It is therefore our aim to offer a value added product with top quality processes, on-time deliveries and excellent technical service. With to our vast expertise in a diversified market as well as our understanding of the customers’ needs and processes, we are in a position to offer you customized solutions.


Globally active, locally based

Our global business activities are based on tradition and experience dating back all the way to the 19th century when we were still part of the then Metallgesellschaft. Spun off as a separate entity in 1982, we are now one of the leading global players in Surface Treatment with headquarters in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. With our 2,500 employees, 40 subsidiaries and 21 production sites, we are a financially strong and fast growing company with a long-term orientation. Our aim is to further strengthen our quality and innovation leadership. With our own sales offices, production facilities, service teams, laboratories and warehouses at locations all around the world, we are operating in close proximity to our customers.


Sustainably successful

Responsible practices and sustainable development are the principles we base our actions on.
