The investment will increase by 12.000 tons the production capacity for UV/EB curable acrylates.

Completion by June 2017

The project, aiming at full completion by June 2017, consists of the construction of a new and fully automated reactor, modifications to existing reactor lines and increased bulk truck loading capacity. The service to the customers and the product supply will not be impacted during this implementation phase. Audrey De Wulf, Regional Business Director Radcure EMEA, stated that "our customers in the industrial coatings, graphics and special application segments forecast continued growth for the radcure technology in Europe and globally. Our new capacity in Drogenbos will allow Allnex to keep meeting the market demand and to serve our customers with existing and new UV/EB curable products”

Strengthen global market leadership

Filip De Tandt, Global Business Manager for Monomers and Epoxy-Acrylates at Allnex added: "With this new investment, Allnex shows its strategy and commitment to further strengthen its global market leadership in the radcure technology”.

Davy De Clercq, Allnex Drogenbos Site Director, explained: "The Drogenbos site has a long-lasting experience with the production of UV/EB acrylates product range. Drogenbos has been awarded this important investment thanks to its broad experience on the acrylate chemistry, its demonstrated production efficiency and reliable project management.”
