The facility manufactures resin technologies for the paint and coatings, graphic arts, engineered paper, textile and other industries under such brand names as "Hycar”, "Carboset” and "Printrite”. The new capacity is key to meeting the demands of customers throughout Europe that require unique, high-performance technologies for differentiated resin performance.

New reactors installed

"Over the past 18 months, new reactors have been installed," said Ivo Van Aken, Lubrizol Antwerp Plant Manager. "This was done to replace older equipment and also to increase our production capabilities, allowing us to address new market demand."

For Lubrizol's customers, the new acrylic emulsion capabilities provide greater flexibility to manufacture customised solutions that meet very specific performance requirements," noted Tom Keir, Lubrizol Director of Product Management. "It also allows our global customers to access the same technologies in Europe as are available in other parts of the world. This helps them simplify operations and improve global efficiencies."
