Areas of application

As a customer of LOMBERG GmbH you benefit from our many years of experience in the chemicals distribution. Furthermore, as a member of the WOCKLUM group, we are part of a strong infrastructure at our sites in Balve and Oberhausen, with all the advantages a chemicals distributor offers, e.g. a maximum of flexibility to meet customers and suppliers requirements. Due to our good relations to the international procurement markets, based on trust and partnership, we have achieved our strong position in the various industries. Being an exclusive representative of principals we have advantages which we gladly pass on to you. This includes a transparent supply chain and solution-focused corporation from Lomberg to the producer. LOMBERG organizes their activities mainly into two business units: – MATERIAL SCIENCE: This BU does not only supply the classical INDUSTRIAL CHEMICALS, but also highly specialized PERFORMANCE CHEMICALS, especially for glass, ceramics, electronics and coating industry. – LIFE SCIENCE: This BU delivers excipients for pharma industry, as well as raw materials for food industry and additives for nutritional supplement industry, amongst others. Naturally, we are also available as your contact for other industrial branches. We will find the suitable raw material even for sophisticated applications with you.

Material Science (Performance & Industrial Chemicals)

Lacquers, paints and plastic-based, refined surfaces have become an integral part of our everyday life. In addition to their suitability for everyday use, they often give objects very special properties such as adhesion, colour, gloss, elasticity, corrosion protection, low flammability or electromagnetic conductivity.
Many of these materials are produced by polymerization of relatively few base monomers – only additives give them their special properties.
Among others we offer the following high-quality chemicals for the coating industry:

  • ESSECHLOR C14 – C30
  • Org. phosphates
  • Pigments, inorganic
  • Silanes


The requirements surrounding chemicals in the electronics sector are amongst the strictest in the world. The raw materials that we offer therefore satisfy the highest quality standards.

Our products are primarily used in the following areas: Surge protection/metal oxide varsitors, electronic construction elements and modules, capacitors for high performance electronics, battery and fuel cell technology, piezo ceramics and ferrites

We also offer the following high quality chemicals for the electronics sector:

  • Nickel oxide
  • Cobalt oxide
  • Zinc oxide
  • Bismuth oxide
  • Antimony trioxide
  • Tin-IV-oxide

Enamels / glazes

Glazes and enamels are melted-on glassy coatings which are applied to either ceramic or metal and fired at high temperature. They therefore provide superb protection against abrasion, corrosion and chemicals.

Our range of products includes numerous high quality raw materials for this area of application. Those are mass-market products such as barium carbonate, boric acid, potassium nitrate (potassium salpetre), potash (potassium carbonate) and sodium salpetre (potassium nitrate) as well as the following specialist products:

  • Aluminium fluoride
  • Aluminium hydroxide
  • Antimony trioxide
  • Barium nitrate
  • Lead nitrate
  • Cadmium sulphide
  • Chromium oxide (green)
  • Cobalt oxide
  • Copper(II)-oxide
  • Magnesium hexafluorosilicate
  • Manganese dioxide
  • Nickel oxide
  • Phosphate
  • Strontium carbonate
  • Tin-IV-oxide


Glass is a man-made material which has been used for thousands of years. In everyday life, in science and research, in architecture and in other innovative areas – glass is a large part of our daily life and finds new areas of use all the time.

The manufacturing of glass products is a sophisticated process, which is why it is important that the many differing raw materials that are used are of high quality.

Our range of products includes both the requisite mass-market products such as aluminium hydroxide, barium carbonate, potash, soda and titanium oxide as well as a variety of specialist products:

  • Antimony trioxide
  • Cerium dioxide
  • Chromium oxide (green)
  • Erbium oxide
  • Cobalt oxide
  • Copper(II)-oxide
  • Nickel oxide
  • Sodium selenite
  • Selenium
  • Zinc oxide
  • Tin-IV-oxide
  • Zinc selenite

Life science (Pharma / Food / Nutrition)

-More than just a logical addition-

Lomberg deals with trading of additives for pharma, food and nutrition, which are affiliated with the newly developed area of life science.
Due to our well-established and long-term supplier relations in our key business of chemistry we can generate pointed synergies to deliver food and pharma qualities of the applicable products. Constant growth of our portfolio is granted by the consistent expansion of our supplier network. Custom tailored service and qualified guidance with regards to distribution complete our offer. Get to know us as your competent partner for life science activities and profit from our capabilities.
A widely spread product range not only supports short communication lines but also provides for a highly efficient implementation.



Every pharmaceutical production requires constant quality of the applied additives and a reliable supply chain. The right partner makes the profitable difference. Our suppliers and the contacts at Lomberg GmbH not only support you in purchasing the material, but also with the specific product implementation. We will gladly prove our expertise and that of our contractors.



The food industry and its regulations require competent handling of the base materials. We deliberately use the overlapping of products in pharma, food and nutrition in the area of applied raw materials and additives. Hence, the material source and contact are often the same. We’ll gladly share this bundled knowledge with you in newly or further developing your food products.




With growing importance of the nutritional supplement industry we offer you interesting solutions. The broad spectrum of products in nutritional supplements meets our quick reaction times and continuous availability. Tableting is faced with major challenges in regards to the high standard in drug loading in nutritional supplements. Our life science products tackle this problem and allow for a smooth implementation of your product ideas.
