Hexion plans to expand its waterborne epoxy resin production capacity in Tianjin, China. The facility revamp includes a new reactor to meet increasing demand for epoxy products.

Tianjin, PR China – With the expansion, Hexion will be able to locally produce and shorten supply times for a broad range of epoxy resins, curing agent and modifiers including its latest development, a waterborne, 2K zinc-rich resin system that is comparable in performance to traditional solvent-borne technologies.

"Waterborne technology offers manufacturers a more sustainable alternative to solvent-based coatings by reducing volatile organic compounds," says Terry Shao, Hexion's regional market development manager for China. "Hexion was one of the first global suppliers to bring high-end epoxy waterborne technology to the region, and this investment is further evidence of our commitment to help customers meet the most rigorous environmental standards and adopt sustainable paints and protective coatings."

The investment in new capacity, combined with Hexion's dedicated research and development capabilities in Shanghai, offers regional customers an end-to-end solution for their product development needs.
