DSM expands production capacity in Germany
Royal DSM has announced the operational launch of a new state-of-the-art polyester production facility in Meppen, Germany.
With the expansion of its production capacity of its sustainable liquid polyester technology and other specialty resins the company aims strengthening of its leadership in sustainable, innovative resins & circular economy solutions. This completed expansion follows the strong growth in the can and coil coatings segment in recent years, with growth driven by the market shift from epoxy-based packaging coatings toward new more sustainable bisphenol (BPA)-free solutions.
Greater supply flexibility and security
DSM’s new facility will enable greater supply flexibility and security, the ability to meet growing customer demand and address customer needs, as well as improving DSM’s own inventory management and positively contributing to DSM’s working capital management. In addition, the investment in new technology underlines DSM’s commitment to the production of high-quality products and economic incentives in the region of Meppen, which links the economic areas of northern and central Europe.
Thanks to their excellent characteristics, epoxy resins belong to the most established binders within the coatings industry. This new book explains the basic principles of the chemistry of the epoxy group and imparts the use of epoxy and phenoxy resins in industrial coatings, such as anticorrosive coatings, floor coatings, powder coatings and can coatings, with the help of concrete formulations. Essential for any formulator of competitive modern paint systems!
