Beyond their use as catalysts, metal carboxylate and inorganic chemistries are vital functional additives in applications ranging from personal care to automotive. Our soluble zinc compounds reduce malodor by scavenging sulfur compounds common in asphalt and human sweat. Bismuth, molybdenum, tungsten and zinc are effective anti-corrosion, extreme pressure and anti-wear additives in engine oils. Cobalt complexes act to strengthen and protect the critical bond between the rubber and belt in radial tires. Bismuth subcarbonate is used as an opacifier in catheter tubing, X-ray diagnostics and many other medical-related applications. What can metal chemistries do for you?
Shepherd’s portfolio includes a select range of commercially available functional additives and we have the metal chemistry expertise to Custom Co-Develop tailored solutions for your application.
