Text size
INVISTA’s polymer production base in Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP) has completed its goal of expanding its annual production capacity of 40,000 tons of nylon 66 polymers. The increase in production brings the annual production capacity of the production base to 190,000 tons.

"The expansion of the polymer production base is part of INVISTA's strategic investment. The goal is to meet the strong demand for high-quality nylon products in China and the Asia-Pacific region," said Dou Fangfang, Business Director of INVISTA Nylon Polymers Asia Pacific. "According to our estimates, in the next few years, China will become the world’s largest consumer of nylon 66, with a wide range of growth areas, such as engineering plastics used in the automotive, electrical and engineering markets, especially lightweight, powertrain component optimization, electrification and automation."

The expanded production line is INVISTA’s fourth continuous polymerization production line in Shanghai Chemical Industrial Park. The production base currently has a batch polymerization production line with an annual capacity of 30,000 tons and a continuous polymerization nylon 66 production line with an annual capacity of 160,000 tons.

Pete Brown, Executive Vice President of INVISTA’s Nylon Polymers Business, added: “The increased polymer production capacity this time is another key component of INVISTA’s integrated nylon 66 industrial chain in Shanghai Chemical Industry Park. The chemical base also includes a hexamethylene diamine (HMD) production base with an annual capacity of 215,000 tons, and an adiponitrile (ADN) production base with an annual capacity of 400,000 tons which is currently under construction.
