Invvista several polymer patents pending

WICHITA, US: Invista has several patents pending on a new nylon 12 monomer technology, which the global polymer company will soon produce at pilot scale. The new technology would position Invista as a significant supplier of nylon 12 polymer, providing solutions to meet the growing industry needs. Invista will seek market input and feedback almost immediately and expects to begin product qualifications as early as 2015. After that, the company plans to begin scale up of the new process and prepare for full scale manufacturing.

“If the pilot is successful, Invista would become the first new, fully integrated nylon 12 producer in more than 30 years. In addition, based upon results to date, we believe Invista’s nylon 12 technology is simpler and more efficient than existing technologies. Our nylon 12 chemical intermediates were critical to assisting the market during the industry’s shortage in 2012. Since then, in an effort to provide this market with more supply options, we have been researching novel approaches to the production of nylon 12 monomer and other long chain molecules,” said Ed Sullivan, Global Business Director, C12 intermediates, Invista.
