SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: Styrolution, the global leader in styrenics, announced the inauguration of its Luran S plant located in Ulsan, South Korea. Luran S is the brand name for Styrolution’s styrene acrylonitrile copolymers that have been impact-modified with acrylic ester rubber, acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA). The new plant has a capacity of 43,000 metric tonne per year, complementing current ASA capacity in Europe and North America, enabling Styrolution to offer customers in the Asia-Pacific region greater security of supply and shorter lead times.

“Styrolution excels at helping customers develop customized applications that offer a competitive edge. This new Luran S production line in Ulsan will help Styrolution capture more opportunities in emerging markets, such as the automotive and building & construction industries in Asia where quality and innovation are keys to commercial success. The new line will also enable Styrolution to expand our product portfolio in more Asian countries and further strengthen our market position as a global leader in styrenics,” said Hyung Tae Chang, President Asia-Pacific, Styrolution.
