Specialist Chemical and Mineral Products for your Underground Applications: DSI Schaum Chemie

A History of Safety in Mines

Wilhelm Bauer established Schaum-Chemie in 1951. At that time, our company focused on the development, manufacturing and marketing of chemical components. Another important business area was equipment for the production of foamed plastics consisting of urea-formaldehyde resins. From the beginning, our products have been suitable for numerous applications such as waterproofing or void filling in mines. Over time, at Schaum-Chemie, we have also developed polyurethane and organic mineral systems for consolidating and sealing rocks.

Your reliable Partner on the Polish Market

In 1992, our subsidiary Schaum-Chemie Mikołów Spółka z o.o. was founded in Poland. In 1995, our company was the first in Poland to produce liquid chemical components for mines. In 1997, we purchased real estate property and made important investments in 1997. Since then, we have successfully operated on the market. Later on, we enlarged our offer to include primarily mineral and antipyrogenic materials.

The DSI Underground Group: Reinforcing Progress

In March 2014, the DSI Underground Group acquired 100% of the shares in Schaum-Chemie Mikołów and in all related intellectual property and know-how. This acquisition represents an important step in DSI Underground’s strategy to strengthen its footprint in the European mining market. It allows DSI Underground to penetrate the Polish and Czech mining markets, which are, despite the current slowdown, among the largest in Europe. Following the acquisition, our company changed its name to DSI Schaum Chemie sp. z o.o.
