Solvay: Start of Production
Solvay, Brussels, Belgium, has started its specialty polymers compounding plant located in Changshu, province of Jiangsu in China, to serve the local demand for specialty polymers compounds. The plant is mainly serving China’s customers in the electronics, automotive, consumer and industrial applications markets with compounds of Amodel polyphthalamide (PPA), Ixef polyarylamide (PARA) and Kalix (modified PARA).
This plant required an investment of EUR 21 million and is fully adaptable for future expansion of overall capacity as well as production of compounds made out of other high performance polymers. It is adjacent to another specialty polymers plant which is currently under construction for the production of Solef Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF), Tecnoflon Fluoroelastomers (FKM) and their essential monomer VF2.
