Evonik increases production capacities for matting agents
The significant capacity increase is intended to help meeting the rising demand for matting agents in Asia, with the capacity expansion scheduled for completion by the second half of 2023.
According to the company, the matting agents in question can enable formulators to reach the full spectrum of matting levels from semi gloss to ultra-deep matt, and the various industrial and transportation application areas range from textile to plastic, leather, can and coil coatings.
“Continuously expanding our position”
“The capacity expansion of our leading matting agents in Taiwan further emphasizes our commitment to the growing markets in Asia and to all our regional and multi-national customers,” says Maximilian Morin, Head of Industrial & Transportation Coatings at Evonik Coating Additives. “We are continuously expanding our position as a truly global partner for our coatings customers by offering the same high quality products from manufacturing locations in multiple regions. In times of rising logistical challenges, such an investment will also directly benefit our partners and customers across the globe by further improving our supply situation worldwide.”
