Lubrizol expands hyperdispersant capacity in US; launches new reactor

CLEVELAND, US: Lubrizol Corporation said it has launched a new hyperdispersant reactor at its Avon Lake, Ohio facility. The unit will be used for the manufacture of solsperse hyperdispersants. Through excellent dispersion stability, solsperse hyperdispersants enable premium levels of appearance and performance while driving improvements to manufacturing efficiency and quality in the production of a wide ranges of paints, coatings, colourants and inks. The launch follows recent expansion of hyperdispersant capacity in Europe. This will significantly increase Lubrizol’s ability to produce solsperse hyperdispersants to meet growing demand worldwide.

The addition of the new reactor required additional operator resources as well, growing the number of employees at the Avon Lake facility by 5 percent.

“Our investment in this new manufacturing unit underlines our commitment to bringing high-value dispersant chemistry to the global market. The improved efficiency and operational flexibility offered by this added capacity, coupled with our recent expansion in Europe, will enable us to provide our customers with a diversity of options to meet their needs,” said Tom Keir, director, product management, states, Lubrizol.
