Solvay is expanding its global production capacity in sulfone polymers in India and the United States to address demand growth from mainly the medical and water treatment industries for this high-performance thermoplastic material.

Brussels/Belgium — As part of the company's earlier announced plan to lift sulfone polymers capacity by more than 35 % in the next five years. The manufacturer is constructing a new production unit, dedicated to polyethersulfone (PESU) in Panoli, India.

Capacity increases are also occurring in the US at the polymer and monomer units in Marietta (Ohio) and Augusta (Georgia), via investment and process optimizations.

Construction of the new unit in Panoli is underway and production should reach full capacity mid 2019.

Solvay's sulfone polymers Radel PPSU (polyphenylsulfone), Veradel PESU (polyethersulfone) and Udel PSU (polysulfone) are applied in a range of highly competitive industries, such as aerospace, automotive, water and electronics as well as consumer and construction markets.
