By Mary Page Bailey |

INVISTA (Wichita, Kan.; www.invista.com) announced that installation of a new reactor at its polyols manufacturing facility in Vlissingen, the Netherlands, is complete. The reactor is producing material within specifications, and customer deliveries have started. 

“We are pleased that our ability to supply the market is growing along with increased growth in demand from our valued customers,” said Peter Zeimentz, INVISTA European business manager for polyols. “With the PIR insulation market picking up and an increasing number of customers qualifying INVISTA’s polyols, the timing of this supply coming online couldn’t be better. ”

Martin de Graaf, INVISTA Vlissingen site manager, said, “We’re proud of this project on many levels. Thanks to the diligence of the team, and in alignment with our strong safety culture, we were able to safely complete the work on time and within budget.”

Terate aromatic polyester polyols allow formulation flexibility in achieving the range of physical and flammability properties required of polyurethane and polyisocyanurate foams.
