Great Lakes meets increased UD demand for polymer stabiliser blends

Great Lakes Chemical Corporation : 18 December, 2002  (Company News)
Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has boosted production capacity by 100% for its patented no dust blends (NDB) line of polymer stabilisers with the opening of a production and service centre in Arlington, Texas.
Great Lakes Chemical Corporation has boosted production capacity by 100% for its patented no dust blends (NDB) line of polymer stabilisers with the opening of a production and service centre in Arlington, Texas.

The new production facility is strategically located near the Gulf of Mexico to offer enhanced services to major US markets served by the company and positions Great Lakes to meet growing customer demand for no dust blends.

“The Arlington facility’s production flexibility and streamlined logistics significantly expands our ability to service our customers,” said Doug Excell, Global Business Manager, Polymer Stabiliser Blends. “Great Lakes will now offer additional physical form capabilities on a full commercial or pilot scale including blending, granulation and extrusion.”

Excell concluded, “This new facility increases extrusion capacity by 100 percent for our Anox NDB line of polymer stabilizers and provides for future expansion to meet the increasing global demand for these polymer stabilizer blends.”

Great Lakes’ polymer stabiliser blends are manufactured in several product forms using proprietary and patented technology. Anox NDB is a homogeneous, custom-made blend of additives incorporated into a free flowing, dust-free, mechanically resistant physical form. The Anox product line also includes
Anox TB and Anox BB blends incorporating hindered phenols and phosphite antioxidants.

Earlier in 2002, Great Lakes announced expansion of their polymer stabilizer blend capacity at sites in Pedrengo, Italy, and Al Jubail, Saudi Arabia. The company also manufactures polymer stabilizers and blends in Newport, TN; Pyongtaek, Korea; Ravenna, Italy; and Waldkraiburg, Germany.
