The Group invested a mid-double-digit million euro amount in the plant, which has a production capacity of several thousand metric tons per year. Evonik will market HTPB under the brand name "Polyvest HT" and with it the company is extending its polybutadienes product portfolio by a further functionalised grade. It is primarily used in sealing compounds for insulating glass windows as well as in adhesives for automotive construction.
The construction of the production plant is an investment in customer proximity and sustainability. Most markets for HTPB are located in Europe. "With the Marl production site we have a backward integration in butadiene, good application technology support, and in addition, we are able to offer a good supply security and reduced delivery times," explains Dr. Dietmar Wewers, head of the Coating & Adhesive Resins Business Line.

Megatrend resource efficiency drives market growth

With the investment in the HTPB plant, Evonik Industries is strengthening its position as a solutions provider in the dynamically growing market of the adhesive and sealants industry. "With the product portfolio we want to participate in the above average growth of the adhesive industry. The plant in Marl is a good example of the innovative further development of our portfolio for the adhesive market," underlines Wewers.
