Products or Machinery

Our wide range of products for the architecture sector helps to turn buildings into energy-savers, windows into smart glass and facades into eye-catchers.

Merck is the market leader in liquid crystals (LC), which are usually found in displays of electronic devices – but that’s not the only way they can be used. We are applying the same technology to switchable windows which can quickly regulate the amount of sunlight entering a building. This LC-infused glass can create a pleasant atmosphere providing glare protection and immediate privacy by changing its translucency at the blink of an eye.

Modern buildings are expected to be well-planned, functional and energy-efficient. But we think they should also be nice to look at, especially for the people who live or work in them. That’s where our effect pigments come into play. Coatings manufacturers use effect pigments to make high-quality products that offer architects new design possibilities. Our portfolio includes a variety of pigments for wall, floor or façade applications. Some simply shine and sparkle, others shimmer in different colors depending on the viewing angle of the passer-by. 

We even offer an anti-ageing solution for buildings. Our Durazane range, based on polysilazanes, can be used to seal entire façades. They form a thin glass layer that protects the surface against weathering, corrosion, pollution and other external influences. It can keep façades beautiful for many years while ensuring they require less maintenance and cleaning.
