The unit will be used for the manufacture of "Solsperse" hyperdispersants.

Reactor complements expansion in Europe

The launch follows recent expansion of hyperdispersant capacity in Europe. Taken together, the recent actions in the U.S. and Europe will significantly increase Lubrizol's ability to produce "Solsperse" hyperdispersants to meet growing demand worldwide. Commenting on the new U.S.-based capacity, Tom Keir, director of product management, states, "Our investment in this new manufacturing unit underlines our commitment to bringing high-value dispersant chemistry to the global market. The improved efficiency and operational flexibility offered by this added capacity, coupled with our recent expansion in Europe, will enable us to provide our customers with a diversity of options to meet their needs." The addition of the new reactor required additional operator resources as well, growing the number of employees at the Avon Lake facility by 5%.

"Solsperse" hyperdispersants enable high levels of appearance and performance while driving improvements to manufacturing efficiency and quality in the production of a wide ranges of paints, coatings, colourants and inks.
