Warrington, UK — Perstorp has announced plans to increase capacity for its Capa monomers by the start of 2019.
The company declined to give any capacity or investment figures, but said the new investment will be to replace the original monomer stream one plant which was built in 1998.
Construction is expected to start in 2018 after the detailed design phase is completed this year, the firm added.
It continued that a number of specialist construction firms are tendering for the work at the moment.
Perstorp said that its largest outlet for the prepolymers is in the polyurethane CASE industry.
