Chemistry, Mining, Material Science

IBZ-Salzchemie GmbH & Co. KG is a consultant company (SME) and operates laboratory rooms for chemistry and material science since 2003. IBZ-Salzchemie is located in Halsbruecke being in Saxony/Germany close to the university town Freiberg.

We are a reliable partner for the industry, we are working in lab scale, do pilot tests and assist the work on construction sites. Our fields of work:

• Inorganic and technical chemistry
• Material science
• Mining industry (e.g. grouting, solution mining)
• Conservation and cultural heritage preservation
• Remediation (water, soil)

We are offering contract research and do research on our own regarding rock sealing, immobilization of contaminants, nano-materials and material science.
European FP7 Project “STONECORE®” was successfully coordinated by us in the field of stone conservation. IBZ has developed a stone consolidant based on nano-materials as well as a mildew killer being long-time protection lasting.
