Solvay Inaugurates Fluorelastomer Plant in China

Solvay Specialty Polymers, a global supplier of high-performance polymers, celebrated the inauguration of its FKM brand Tecnoflon Plant in Changshu, China on November 10, 2015.

Located in Jiangsu Changshu Advanced Materials Industrial Park, this new FKM plant is the third fluorelastomer unit that Solvay Specialty Polymers operates in the world. It benefits from the site’s existing Specialty Polymers operations and infrastructure. From Changshu, Solvay will supply Tecnoflon FKM which resists aggressive chemicals and operating temperature of more than 250°C and is easy to process with various different molding techniques. Typical end-use products are gaskets, shaft seals and hoses used in sealing applications in the fast-growing automotive, industrial and oil and gas industries.

At the same site, Solvay Specialty Polymers is currently constructing a unit for the production of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) to supply its brand Solef. The unit is due to come on-stream by early 2017 with the total combined project investment of EUR 142 million. In addition to fluoroelastomers, Solvay’s operations at Changshu also include compounding of products based on its specialty polymers resins.
