Energy saving is on the tip of everybody’s tongue
The subject energy saving is the dominant issue in our industry. It is not just a vogue term as figures can proof. Last year we had a double-digit growth in demand for products from our highly heat-insulating product-family COSMO®ENERGY in comparison to 2009.
COSMO®ENERGY is a composite panel that features better U-values, mainly because of its thicker foam-core but also availablel as a façade element with a vacuum sealed core inside. Our premium-product and topseller is the PVC/PUR-AL panel in 36mm thickness with a U-value of 0,65 W (m² x k)
COSMO®ENERGY panels are available in an almost unlimited variety of different surfaces - please feel free to contact us.

Fire protection - also a topic for adhesives
Not only the used building- and insulating materials, structural elements, room- and walling systems are subject to the high requirements for fire protection and flame resistance, but also the adhesive systems and adhesive sealing compounds for bonding and sealing have to fulfil these properties.
Whether for the interior fitting of cruise liners, railway vehicles, ships, yachts, public complexes like airports, railroad stations, commercial centres, industrial buildings or complexes for public authorities, all over these places, high criteria for the fire protection have to be observed.
Weiss Chemie offers, for the manufacturing of the elements and component parts as well as for their mounting, tested and certified adhesive systems, which fulfil the international standards of the BG Verkehr, Hamburg, or of the U.S. Coast Guard approval.
Is fire protection a topic for you, as manufacturer or as assembly operation? Then, our company Weiss is the right partner for you for adhesives and adhesive sealing compounds.
Innovation and progress
without any ifs and buts!
We have always faced up conscientiously to themes concerning products containing dangerous substances which are subject to labelling and security advices of possible risks during the process.
“Responsible care” – this is also the guiding principle of the German Chemical Industry Association (VCI) – especially this guiding principle has us motivated to develop products which can already today replace so called adhesives subject to labelling thanks their new formulation.
Constructional high-strength bonding, which was in the past only practicable with well-proven adhesive systems based on polyurethane (PUR) or epoxy (EP), is now possible, reliable and durable, with our new developed COSMOHYBRID 1814, for which we have applied for a patent.
The new constructional adhesive with convincing arguments:
COSMOHYBRID 1814 is available as standard in the 310 ml-cartridge; on demand, 600 ml-tubular bags, 20 l-drums and 200 l clamping-ring drums are also possible.
Please feel free to ask for a sample and further details!

Weiss team participates in Frankfurt footrace “JP Morgan Corporate Challenge 2010”
72.741 runners in total took part in the world’s largest company footrace in Frankfurt on June 9th, 2010, and 13 members of our Weiss team were eager to accept this challenge.
For the fourth time already, we made our way to Frankfurt in order to run for team spirit, communication, colleagueship, fairness and health. As every year, the route of 5.6 km led through the city centre, from the Alte Oper to the Senckenberganlage. Our team consisted of members from both our Chemicals- and our Composite Panels division, and even our CEO Jürgen Grimm did not hesitate to join this event and to compete in the footrace as well.
It was particularly exciting for us to meet some of our customers during the footrace, or at least to see their company logos on their t-shirts from a distance. We are already looking forward to June 15th, 2011 when the next JP Morgan Corporate Challenge is scheduled, and hopefully we will participate in it once more.

Smart and innovative products, bonded with
COSMO® - the adhesive brand. TRIPENDO,
that’s the name of this innovative three-wheeler.
It is not the three-wheeler itself that is new, as for many years this technique exists for bikes as well as motorbikes. The real innovation is the undercarriage. Whereas the usual tricycle is at risk of tipping and one should drive modest and carefully when cornering, TRIPENDO offers an extreme stability for cornering. The whole undercarriage tilts into the curve along with the wheels; an emotional but safe experience also at higher speeds.
Our contribution to this innovation is the 2-component-adhesive COSMOPUR 890/805 for the bonding of chassis parts. On the one hand it is essential to offer a high-strength and long-lasting bonding and on the other hand, it is necessary to absorb the impact of driving and the vibrations by a certain elasticity.
We think this is a further example for the reliable adhesive technology with
COSMO® - the adhesive brand.
Next level energy saving panels
The new product line COSMO®ENERGY “made by Weiss” takes energy saving to the next level.
High efficient and insulating yet rather thin panels to match the latest energy saving recommendations and regulations (e.g. EnEV. German code for energy saving and efficiency).
The premium core material PUR/AL provides (U value 0.65 with an overall thickness of 36 mm) sets a new milestone in energy efficient façade construction.
COSMO®ENERGY panels are available in almost the same variety of surface materials and designs as our renown COSMO Tech line panels.
Bonding on behalf of research and science
Our reference object 2009 - the polar station Neumayer III - impressively shows how the conventional joining techniques (like welding, rivetting, bolting) can be replaced by high standard bonding. The room modules have been bonded with a viscoplastic / high-strength 2-part adhesive.
Besides the required fire protection characteristics certified by an institute, a reliable constructive strength was necessary for this special application, because the bonded mobile homes had to resist a pressure of 3,000 kg during the inspection of the “Germanische Lloyd”. Furthermore the adhesive characteristics have to persist at a continuing temperature burden of up to -60°C.
Competence unites - made by Weiss.
VACUPA glass-aluminium panel ready for European markets
On Nov 25th, 2009 three VACUPA glass-aluminium panels have been tested according to EN 13501-1 / EN 13823 at the MPA (Institute for Testing of Construction Materials) in Erwitte near Paderborn.
In the so-called SBI (Single-Burning-Item) test, two panels are placed upright to simulate a corner of a room. A gas burner is put right into this corner to simulate “an unattended trash bin burning for ten minutes”, explains the responsible engineer Dipl.-Ing. Kühnen.
All temperatures and gases as well as the visible damages of the panels are lmeasured, analysed and ogged during the test procedure and stipulated in a protocol. As a result the panel achieves a three part rating:
Class (A2, B, C or D) – Smoke (0, 1, 2) – droplets (0, 1, 2)
COSMO Tech VACUPA has been tested as B – s2 – d0 and is now suitable to be installed in facades if the national legislation is in sync with the relevant EN code.
Picture taken during the test. We were safe behind fire proof glass while the gas flame penetrated the VACUPA panels.
New logistics centre
Within the next few days, we will start the building measures for the new logistics centre at our location in Haiger (total investment volume of approx. 3 million Euro). In the middle of June 2010, the building activities should have been finished and then the new centre can be put into operation.
On a total surface of 3700 m², a new area will arise for the packaging and the subsequent product shipment of our two business divisions as well as for storage space for finished products. Our declared objective is, due to the centralisation of logistics processes, to tighten the operation procedures in order to reorganise the flow of material more efficiently and cost-optimised as until now.
Thanks to the displacement of logistics processes to the new area, space is released, and this gives us the possibility to reorganise the manufacturing layout of our business division chemicals, whereby additional growth potential in the production field will arise.
Particular advantages for our customers will be a better product availability due to the extension of the storage surface, and furthermore, the possibility of a later planned round-the-clock shipment.
