COLUMBIA, US: W R Grace & Company has contracted to license its UNIPOL PP process technology to Dongguan Grand Resource Science & Technology Co Ltd. The installations will be made at the company’s facility in Dongguan, Guangzhou province, China, and are expected to begin operations in 2019 using Grace’s leading non-phthalate CONSISTA PP catalysts.

Dongguan Grand Resource’s new facility will produce a total of 600 kilotons per year of homopolymer thermoplastic resins in dual reactor lines. The project represents the 20th and 21st UNIPOL PP process technology reactor line licenses in China.

Grace’s UNIPOL PP process technology is an all gas-phase technology with the industry’s broadest product capabilities coupled with a stable and predictable operation. UNIPOL PP process technology is the simplest of all PP process technologies, with fewer moving parts and less equipment than any competing alternative.

This leads to lower capital, operating, and maintenance costs while maximising reliability. Although mechanically simple, the technology enables the production of the broadest, most advanced homopolymers, random copolymers, and impact copolymers in the industry.

“We are committed to delivering high-quality products at competitive prices and Grace’s UNIPOL PP process and CONSISTA catalyst system is the most economical way to rapidly develop our portfolio of products,” said Wang Ligui, vice president, Dongguan Grand Resources.

“Grace is proud to partner with Dongguan Grand Resources and continue our record of service to customers in China. We believe this represents more evidence that our industry-leading process technology and catalysts technologies combine to provide our customers with the unparalleled flexibility to deliver the resins that are in highest demand,” added Al Beninati, President of Grace’s speciality catalysts business segment.
