DuPont Performance Materials, announced that it is investing in Zytel HTN PPA polymer capacity at its Uentrop facility in Hamm, Germany. This will be the first Zytel HTN polymer production facility in Europe. Construction is already under way and the new plant will begin production in the summer of 2016.

The increase in Zytel HTN capacity is needed to meet the growing global demand for the material in automotive, electrical and consumer electronics markets. "These are exciting times for our nylon businesses; in 2015 we also announced a 10 percent capacity increase for Zytel HTN polymer at our Richmond, Va site in addition to a 20 percent capacity increase for Zytel PA66 and PA6 compounds at the Uentrop site” said Richard Mayo, the Global Business Director for the Nylon and Polyester businesses in DuPont Performance Materials.

Uentrop produces a large variety of polyamide polymers and compounded Zytel resins for a broad range of industries including the automotive, electrical, industrial and consumer markets.
