Chevron Phillips Chemical's new Texas PPS plant completed

11-Jul-09
With the completion of a new 10,000 mtpa polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) plant in Borger, Texas, Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP (Chevron Phillips Chemical) offers the widest array of PPS polymer types and the world's largest PPS capacity available in the plastics industry. Built side-by-side to the existing PPS plant in Borger, the new facility expands the company's total PPS capacity at the site to 20,000 metric tons per year. Ryton® PPS is used in applications ranging from automotive engine mounts to hair straightener housings, and hard disk drive components to chemical pumps. Additionally, Ryton® PPS polymers may be spun into fibers for woven and non-woven fabrics that are used in harsh environments, while Xtel® PPS-based alloys are blow molded into turbo charger air ducts and extruded into piping for down-hole oilfield applications. With the new facility, Chevron Phillips Chemical said it is prepared to meet their needs with a broad portfolio of PPS polymers and compound technology. Chevron Phillips Chemical produces everything from low molecular weight, finely divided powder resins for coating slurries to high molecular weight polymer for thick-walled extrusions. The company also offers other unique capabilities including chain-branching of PPS polymers for improved performance in extrusion applications, solid state molecular weight enhancement (curing) for superior high temperature performance, special wash treatments for improved blend compatibility and alloying, and proprietary process technology for manufacturing low chlorine content PPS polymers.
