Perstorp expands polycaprolactone capacity further

The new capacity should begin commissioning in early 2011, with the full capacity expansion coming on stream during the summer. The new capacity is in response to growing market demand of more than 5 % per year, and secures the future growth of the industry, with formulators secure in the knowledge that sufficient material will be available, says Perstorp. In the PU sector, these products present an attractive alternative for improving properties and end use qualities for coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers, including lower VOC. They are especially suitable for use in PUDs, TPUs, cast elastomers, hot melt adhesives, and UV-stable flexible coatings for leather.
