AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel has signed an agreement to supply its pioneering continuous initiator dosing (CiD) technology to Mexichem Resinas Vinilicas, one of the world’s largest PVC manufacturers. The deal involves three Mexichem plants (two in Mexico, one in Colombia), which will be supplied with organic peroxide by AkzoNobel’s Los Reyes site, where €9 million is being invested to boost the existing manufacturing capacity.

The patented CiD technology was developed to help PVC manufacturers improve reactor output, product quality and operational safety. It allows PVC producers to improve productivity in a key manufacturing step by as much as 20 to 30 per cent, as well as greatly improving the whiteness of the PVC when compared with conventional technology. “One of the major advantages of CiD is that it allows producers to control the reaction speed of the PVC production process by regulating the rate of initiator dosing. This not only enhances productivity, but also makes the process much safer,” explained Jan Svard, Managing Director, Functional Chemicals, AkzoNobel.
