Nouryon (formerly AkzoNobel Specialty Chemicals) has more than doubled capacity for emulsion-based organic peroxides at its site in Los Reyes, Mexico, to meet increased customer demand in the North American polyvinyl chloride (PVC) market.

The company introduced emulsion-based peroxides to North America in 2018. According to Nouryon they are inherently safer alternatives to solvent-based peroxides for making PVC – a plastic used in a wide variety of products including pipes, doors, windows and home siding – while also improving product quality.

Emulsion-based peroxides also play a key role in Nouryon’s patented continuous initiator dosing (CiD) technology, which allows PVC producers to raise reactor output by up to 40% with minimum capital expenditure.

Further Projects

The Los Reyes expansion is the latest in a series of growth investments by the company to better serve customers in the polymer market. Another expansion project in Mexico is due to be completed this year, and additional capacity is also scheduled to come online in Brazil, China, and India.
