DuPont / Lanxess: Expansion of Joint PBT Compounding Capacity

DuPont and Lanxess plan to double the compounding capacity of their joint venture for the production of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT).The partners will together invest approximately EUR 10 million in the DuBay Polymer GmbH facility, located in Hamm-Uentrop, Germany, with construction due to commence shortly and commissioning of the new expansion stage scheduled for early 2012.

According to Lanxess, this capital investment is the two partners’ response to the mounting worldwide demand for PBT compounds. This growth is being driven in particular by the international automotive and electrical/electronic industries, where sales of these high-performance thermoplastics are growing not only organically but also as a result of the many new and innovative applications.
