Shanghai – September 14, 2020 – German specialty chemicals company LANXESS will launch on September 15-17 its first-ever online Virtual Day under the theme of “Creating value with partners.” The event is focused on the Asia-Pacific region and will create a platform  to communicate with customers and partners and promote latest products and solutions.


“This virtual trade fair is our answer to the frequent cancellation of traditional trade shows in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic,” Ming Cheng Chien, President LANXESS Asia-Pacific Region, said. “The very satisfactory response in registrations so far shows that our customers are on board with this new format. We are looking forward to welcoming them to a vibrant and interactive virtual event.”


Virtual Day revolves around a comprehensive 3-day agenda of 56 online seminars held in English, Chinese and Japanese. Here, experts from LANXESS will showcase new products, new processes and new technology for a broad range of industries including new mobility, rubber and plastics, construction, coatings, E&E, metal working, water treatment and personal care.
Moreover, Virtual Day features an interactive 3D exhibition online booth to ensure that participants gain immersive experience. By taking a virtual walk through the 720 degree booth, participants can get detailed information on exhibits and  solutions. A download center with brochures and videos complements the comprehensive offering.


Green mobility portfolio

On May 22, 2020, Premier of the State Council Li Keqiang stated in the Report on the Work of the Government 2020: “We will build more charging facilities and promote wider use of new-energy automobiles. We will stimulate new consumer demand and promote industrial upgrading.” With long-term confidence in the prospects of the electric vehicle market, LANXESS is ready to display its wide range of new products dedicated to the sector at the 720 degree booth and online seminars.


The Lewatit ion exchange resins presented by the Liquid Purification Technologies business unit have been long proven in the extraction and production of battery-grade nickel and cobalt, as well as the purification of high-purity lithium. And these three metals are key cathode materials for electric vehicle batteries today.

Urban sustainable buildings


On July 15, 2020, seven Chinese national departments including the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology rolled out an action plan for constructing green buildings, which prioritized the "improvement of the energy and water efficiency of buildings" and "promotion of the application of green building materials". In view of this, on the Virtual Day, LANXESS will also demonstrate and explore solutions serving the construction industry, such as polymerized flame retardants and inorganic pigments produced with environmental processes.

For the growing market for consumer protection products


With more efforts planned for the development of consumer protection products, LANXESS also seeks to showcase its high performance active ingredient of insect repellent Saltidin® and unique solutions for personal care products during the event.
