Invista: Production Plant for Nylon Salt
The construction of the nylon salt production facility from Invista Engineering Polymers, Rozenburg, the Netherlands began this year, and the company plans to commence salt production by the end of 2012. The new plant will be an addition to the already-integrated nylon facilities around the globe.
Nylon salt is made from adipic acid and hexamethylenediamine. When polymerized, nylon salt becomes nylon polymer, which can be found in applications such as airbags and car parts; residential and commercial carpets; functional active-wear for hiking, cycling and running; and intimate apparel and hosiery.
The Rozenburg plant currently produces nylon polymer for use in fibers and plastics applications, as well as engineering polymers for automotive, electronic, electrical, industrial and consumer applications.
