Solvay: New PTFE Production Plant in Asia
Solvay announced the inauguration of its new world-class Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) Micronised Powder production unit in the People’s Republic of China, to serve the dynamic local demand for innovative and high performance materials. PTFE Micronised Powders, marketed under the brand name Polymist, are used in a variety of complex applications, such as the manufacturing of cosmetics, high gloss inks, high performance lubricants and heat-resistant materials.
This new facility is Solvay’s second PTFE Micronised Powder production unit, the first facility being in Marshallton, Delaware, USA. According to the company Solvay is the only highly integrated PTFE Micronised Powder manufacturer with production units in both NAFTA and Asia. The demand for micronised PTFE in Asia and particularly in China is fuelled by both the fast development of a local customer base as well as by the creation of local production facilities by a number of Solvay’s global clients
