PINNEBERG, Germany — At the beginning of the year, ROWA Lack GmbH installed a new pilot plant rolling mill to manufacture PVC and PMMA pigment preparations. This is now in successful operation and demonstrates a further strategic milestone in the alignment of the ROWALID pigment preparations business unit.

The commissioning of the new pilot plant system at the Seevetal, Germany, site reflects the company's trust in modern standards. The investment increases ROWA Lack's flexibility and extends the range of services and portfolio for specialties. Furthermore, the new system, for the first time makes, it possible to present a manufacturing process from the laboratory, via the pilot plant right through to commercial production. Thanks to batch sizes from 1 - 50 kg, ROWA Lack can cover the demand for sampling on laboratory and pilot-plant scale. At the same time, the company closes the gap for smaller volume productions and cuts the losses caused by small batch sizes that are sometimes required for specific jobs.
