WILMINGTON, DE — A recent capital investment will expand capacity at INVISTA’s Terate® and TERRIN™ polyols manufacturing facility in Vlissingen, the Netherlands. Underscoring its commitment to growing its polyols business, this project is part of continued capacity and efficiency investments at its polyols plants and will allow INVISTA to better serve the increasing demand in the European market. 

“This investment is driven by strong demand for Terate HT polyols, which have been very well received by the market since their introduction a couple of years ago,” said Nadine de Vries, Vice President of INVISTA Polyols. “These, and our newer TERRIN polyols, have expansive applications, and this investment demonstrates our commitment to collaborating with our customers to continue to develop cost-effective solutions that meet their needs.”

Terate aromatic polyester polyols allow formulation flexibility in achieving the range of physical and flammability properties required of polyurethane and polyisocyanurate foams. This comprehensive product line can be used in a variety of applications including flex-faced boardstock, metal-faced sandwich panels, spray foam and block foam.

TERRIN aliphatic polyester polyols contain a minimum of 50 percent recycled content, with some containing renewable content as well. Formulators can use TERRIN polyols in lieu of or in combination with conventional polyether or polyester polyols to formulate a variety of polyurethane products.

In addition to its site in Vlissingen, INVISTA produces Terate and TERRIN polyols at its U.S. facility in Wilmington, NC, which serves the North and South American markets.
