AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS: Nouryon has more than doubled emulsion-based organic peroxides capacity at its site in Los Reyes, Mexico.

The company introduced emulsion-based peroxides to North America in 2018. Used for making polyvinyl chloride (PVC) – a plastic used in a wide variety of products including pipes, doors, windows and home siding – these alternatives to solvent-based peroxides are inherently safer while also improving product quality.

Emulsion-based peroxides also play a key role in Nouryon’s patented continuous initiator dosing (CiD) technology, which allows PVC producers to increase reactor output by up to 40 percent with minimum capital expenditure.

“We are pleased that customers are attracted to the benefits of emulsions for PVC production. We have expanded production capacity quickly to meet demand and are ready to build more capacity to grow with our customers in the future,” said Johan Landfors, Managing Director Polymer Chemistry, Nouryon.
