Huntsman to invest in new line to produce specialist high performance TPU grades

To meet increasing customer demand especially in Asia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East; Huntsman Corporation plans to invest in expansion of capacity at its Osnabrück, Germany TPU facility with a new line to produce specialist high performance TPU grades. Capacities and financial details have not been disclosed for the new line expected to come on stream in H2-08. TPUs combine the advantages of rubber polymers with those of thermoplastics, and are increasingly displacing more traditional materials in a variety of end-use markets and this new line strengthens our ability to meet this opportunity. Huntsman TPUs are sold under the IROGRAN®, IRODUR®, IROSTIC®, IROCOAT®, KRYSTALFLEX® and KRYSTALGUARD® TPU trade names, are injected or extruded to produce a wide range of products such as footwear, wire and cable encapsulations, hose, tubing, films and sheet. They are also used to produce coated and laminated textiles, protective/functional coatings and adhesives.
