Dow to debottleneck glycidyl methacrylate, increase capacity at Freeport, Texas

The Dow Chemical Company plans to complete a debottlenecking project at its Freeport, Texas facility to increase capacity for glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) in the second quarter of 2016, said the Coatingsworld.

The wide use of GMA, a versatile monomer for specialty coatings and resins, has placed increased demand on the product, tightening the market.

"GMA demand continues to grow, and debottlenecking will provide much needed capacity to help us meet and exceed our customer needs," said Kate Glasser, Dow global business director for Monomers. "The extra capacity will expand our capability to help our customers develop high performance coatings that benefit from GMA’s dual acrylic and epoxy functionality."

With outstanding chemical resistance and weatherability, GMA improves the quality and performance for automotive and powder coatings, radiation curable coatings, waterborne resins, industrial and protective finishes, appliance and hardware finishes, adhesives and plastic modifiers.
