Evonik Industries builds new polymerization unit for methacrylic resins in China

By Gerald Ondrey |

The expansion of worldwide production capacity for thermoplastic methacrylic resins at Evonik Industries AG (Essen, Germany; www.evonik.com) is proceeding according to schedule. At Shanghai Chemical Industry Park in China, the company is currently completing the technical equipment that will be part of one of the world largest integrated production sites for methacrylates. The use of innovative polymerization technology makes it possible to manufacture solid binders that meet the most stringent quality standards of the coatings industry. "This new generation of solid binders will improve the performance of the final coating products," says Dr. Dirk Höhler, responsible for the Coating Resins Product Line. The products manufactured at the new plant will be used in particular for industrial coatings, such as marine and container paints and plastics coatings, but will also act as binders in printing inks and ceramic transfer lacquers. The plant is due to go into operation in the second half of next year.
