The Performance Monomers business of The Dow Chemical Company announced a 10 % increase in capacity for the production of Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA) at its US-based Freeport, Texas facility. This results from a debottlenecking initiative that was started to address Dow’s need to increase GMA capacity for its strategic customers. David Mongrue, Global Business Manufacturing Director for Performance Monomers states, "Through the GMA debottlenecking initiative, Dow made significant process and reliability improvements, which delivered a considerable increase in plant capacity in less than a year." Primary applications for GMA include automotive and powder coatings, radiation curable coatings, waterborne resins, industrial and protective finishes, appliance and hardware finishes, adhesives, electrical laminates, hydrogenated LER substitutes as well as plastic modifiers.
