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.
