Nouryon (formerly Akzo Nobel Specialty Chemicals) will double production capacity for solvent-based organic peroxides at its Los Reyes, Mexico site, enabling it to support the strong growth of the North American polyolefin and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) markets. The expansion is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2020.

PVC is widely used in the building and construction market

Polyolefins are used to produce a variety of end products including films, food packaging, and cables. PVC is widely used in the building and construction market in applications such as pipes, ducting, door profiles and window frames.

The Los Reyes expansion is the latest in a series of investments by Nouryon. The company recently expanded production capacity for emulsion-based organic peroxides at Los Reyes and started production of Butanox-branded MEK peroxides at Pasadena, Texas.
