Sibur increases butyl rubber production capacity in Tolyatti

According to the company, the new line is part of an investment project to upgrade the butyl rubber production facility, increasing its design capacity, improving equipment reliability, and reducing environmental impact. The automated butyl rubber production line developed by Welding, Switzerland, includes extruders, dryers, moulding machines, a conveyor belt and other equipment and is distinguished by highly mechanised production processes. The new line will adopt Tolyattikauchuk's existing butyl rubber production technology with its unique solution polymerisation method, which consistently achieves a high product quality, says the company. Tolyattikauchuk produces three types of rubbers (butyl, copolymer and isoprene), monomers, fractions and high-octane fuel additives. Around 70 % of Tolyattikauchuk's output is exported. Synthetic rubber importers include the USA, Canada, Spain, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro, Hungary, the Netherlands, Turkey, France, Belgium, India, Taiwan, Vietnam, Korea, Indonesia, and other countries.
