Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc. and UPC Technology Corporation begin construction of phenolic resins JV in China



Published November 1, 2012
Momentive Specialty Chemicals Inc.  and UPC Technology Corporation  have recently broken ground on a joint venture manufacturing facility. The facility will produce specialty phenolic resins and be operated by Zhenjiang Momentive Union Specialty Chemicals Ltd. established in Zhenjiang, mainland China in August 2012 by Momentive Union Specialty Chemicals Ltd., the joint venture incorporated in Hong Kong in March 2012.

The new joint venture facility, which will produce specialty phenolic resins, is located in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu, China, and is adjacent to an existing UPC Technology Corporation manufacturing complex. This construction represents the first portion of a two-phase project, which will create an 80 KT/annum specialty phenolic resins facility. The new plant will produce a full range of specialty novolac and resole phenolic resins, which will be provided under several trade names of Momentive Specialty Chemicals. These materials are used in applications including refractories, friction, abrasives and electronics. One of Momentive Specialty Chemical’s predecessor companies invented phenolic resins and has a rich heritage of more than 100 years of innovation in phenolic technology and product advances.
