Grace Agrees to acquire Evonik dental silica and Huber Defoamer product lines
R. Grace & Co. has entered into an agreement to acquire certain assets from Evonik Industries AG, following the close of Evonik’s acquisition of J.M. Huber Corporation’s silicas business. The assets to be acquired by Grace include trademarks and licences to produce and sell Evonik’s SIDENT dental precipitated silica product range and J.M. Huber Corporation’s defoamer and anti-caking product ranges.
“Grace has long been a lead-
er in both the supply of dental silica and the supply of additives to a variety of industries. The precipitated silica products and technologies will enable Grace to deliver more value to our leading global consumer products customers with some of the world’s most recognized toothpaste brands. The defoamer precursors and anti-caking agents are a great addition to our strong silica product portfolio,” said Sandra Wisniewski, President, Grace Materials Technologies.
