Ningbo, China -- AkzoNobel said it has inaugurated a rubber additive plant in Ningbo, China. The plant makes organic peroxides: Perkadox 14 (used for different types of rubber and thermoplastics) and Trigonox 101 (used for rheology control of polypropylene and synthetic rubbers). The announcement coincided with the announcement of a new â‚¬45 million investment in a Dicumyl Peroxide (DCP) plant at its Ningbo multi-site in China.
The new DCP facility will expand AkzoNobel Functional Chemicals' DCP production capacity by more than 30 percent to 25,000 metric tons and allow for future expansion. Expected to be completed by mid-2014, it will be the fifth plant built on the multi-site and benefit from the shared infrastructure and state-of-the-art facilities.
