TOKYO, JAPAN: Asahi Kasei Chemicals opened its new plant for solution-polymerized styrene-butadiene rubber (S-SBR) in Jurong Island, Singapore. The plant began commercial operation in April 2013. The company is constructing a second line at the same site, with its start-up scheduled for the first half of 2015. Asahi Kasei Chemicals will continue to expand S-SBR operations as strategic world-leading business, studying construction of other overseas plants following Singapore.

The modified S-SBR produced by Asahi Kasei Chemicals using its continuous polymerization process is widely recognized among tire manufacturers around the world. The new material improves the balance of tire performance characteristics including good wet grip and fuel efficiency as well as abrasion resistance and handling stability.
