TechnoCompound: Investment in PP Compounds
TechnoCompound GmbH, Bad Sobernheim, Germany, is investing in an additional facility for production of long glass fiber-reinforced polypropylene (PP) compounds. This will increase overall production capacity by 10,000 t/a to a total of 60,000 t/a. The start of construction is targeted for the first quarter of 2011, with production slated to begin already in the summer of 2011.
According to information from the company, the facility is necessary to satisfy the growing demand especially for odor-and low-emission PP compounds (brand name: TechnoFiber PP-LGF) for production of instrument panels, door modules and other components in the automotive sector. Double-digit growth rates are anticipated in the long term.
