Leading specialty chemicals company Perstorp has doubled production capacity of its Capa™ caprolactone plant in Warrington, England.
PERSTORP, Sweden - Leading specialty chemicals company Perstorp has doubled production capacity of its Capa™ caprolactone plant in Warrington, England. Due to the rapidly growing demand for caprolactones worldwide, these specialty chemicals have been in short supply for several years. In response, Perstorp has taken steps to secure long-term availability by investing in a second Capa stream at its Warrington plant. Already the world’s largest supplier of caprolactone and its derivatives, Perstorp can now offer twice the production.
Caprolactones are used in applications such as resin modification, waterborne PUD coatings, cast elastomers, hot-melt adhesives, support material for top-quality shoes and modern orthopedic brace supports.
Perstorp’s second Capa stream is based on the same proprietary technology as its first stream, guaranteeing customers the same high quality as before.
