Perstorp Investing in Caprolactone Technology for PU Market
The Perstorp Group, Perstorp/Sweden, will be focusing on its innovative caprolactone product range for the PU market at UTECH NA 2014. Considerable investments between 2011 and 2014 have doubled the capacity for caprolactone production and substantially enhanced market and customer support making Perstorp the undisputed world leader in this technology.
Perstorp’s Capa brand of performance enhancing caprolactones includes an extensive offer of Capa monomer, Capa polyols and Capa thermoplastics. The substantial investments in this advanced and exciting product line will be particularly beneficial to the North American PU market. Capa Monomer worldwide capacity has been doubled, alongside greater capacity and availability of Capa polyols.
The latest Capa investment has been the 2014 commissioning of a pilot plant to support customers’ development needs. Customers will now be able to obtain development samples from 200 kg to 800 kg from this new facility, bridging the gap between lab-scale and full commercial quantities.
