Bollate/Italy — End-use applications in hybrid and low emission internal combustion engines (ICE) and in the semiconductor industry are the key drivers of solid growth.

The recent addition of a brand new state-of-the-art FKM plant in Changshu, China considerably strengthened the company’s manufacturing footprint which now stretches worldwide to include the USA, Europe and Asia. Production of specific FKM peroxide curable and bisphenolic terpolymer grades will be increased at the sites in Changshu and Spinetta Marengo, Italy. The combined production capacity — at current product mix — will be expanded by 30 % by Q4 2019 to sustain the increasing needs of the company’s Tecnoflon FKM customers and end users.
