Momentive Wins Technology Award
Momentive Performance Materials, Albany, NY/USA, received the 2010 Technology in Production Award from the Center for Economic Growth (CEG), a not-for-profit organization covering the state capital region in Albany, NY. In its 14th year, the CEG awards program honors the region’s most innovative and growth-oriented companies and individuals representing technology industries, including advanced materials, alternative energy, biotechnology, information technology and nanotechnology. The company was recognized for improving its process for production of SilForce Slam 3000 silicone anti-mist additive, offered for use in label release coating systems. The new process improved product consistency and increased first pass yield from 72% to 100%, while delivering a more desirable product viscosity. The production process also shortened overall production and equipment cleaning times, and enabled reductions in clean-out and waste generation per unit of product produced.
