Facility for production of polyurethane raw materials for coatings and adhesives.


ANKLESHWAR, INDIA: Bayer MaterialScience has inaugurated a manufacturing facility for polyisocyanates at Ankleshwar, in the state of Gujarat, India. Polyisocyanates are used as raw materials for the production of polyurethane coatings and adhesives. With the investment of approximately 20 million, the company wants to expand its business in India and to participate in the strong growth of this local market for coatings and adhesives.


The plant will produce Desmodur N grades based on aliphatic hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI). Furthermore, Desmodur L grades will be manufactured from aromatic toluylene diisocyanate (TDI). The initial capacity amounts to 15,000 ton per year. It will be increased in stages in the coming years in accordance with the predicted growth for polyurethane coatings and adhesives.
