The Dow Chemical Company announced a capacity increase of 15 percent at the company's acrylic dispersion plant in Villers-Saint-Paul, France.
Construction work began this month and production start-up is scheduled for the third quarter of 2012. It is expected that the plant will reach its full capacity for manufacture of polyacrylic acid products at the beginning of 2013.
The capacity upgrade at Villers-Saint-Paul will benefit customers who are seeking binder technology to use in applications such as high-performance nonwovens. Additionally, it will focus on fast-growing applications in the thermal insulation and concrete admixture market.
The Villers-Saint-Paul plant also produces additives for a variety of other Dow's businesses, mainly high-performing water-soluble polymers, designed to improve performance properties of detergent formulations via anti-scaling and anti-redeposition benefits for a full spectrum of household and institutional applications.
