Dow announced a series of incremental methyl cellulose capacity investments to help construction dry mix customers secure supply of key additives for this expanding area. These capacity increases are part of a multi-phase investment plan for construction chemicals.

Midland/USA — The company will increase capacity in methyl cellulose production at its manufacturing facilities in Bomlitz and Bitterfeld, Germany, supporting customer requirements for high quality cellulose ether products. Collectively, these expansion projects represent a 19,000 metric ton increase in capacity for Walocel and Methocel cellulose ethers, which are used in a variety of applications for tile adhesives, grouts, fillers, levellers and joint compounds; reinforcing and bonding mortars for External Thermal Insulation Composite System (Etics); gypsum plasters; and cement-based renders. The new capacities are expected to come online in 2019 and 2020.
