According to Bayer, PU raw materials made at the South Charleston plant are utilised in automotive seating and also serve the CASE markets. Increased capacity is now coming on-stream; full capacity is expected in 2014. The Channelview site supplies PU raw materials to the flexible foam market. Investments in the plant further build on the company's Impact technology, which is based on its double metal catalyst (DMC), and will effectively double original start-up capacity of the plant. Upgrades to this site will take place in 2014 with full capacity available in 2015.
