Sumitomo Chemical opens new tyrene-butadiene rubber manufacturing plant

SINGAPORE: Sumitomo Chemical Asia Pte Ltd, wholly owned subsidiary of Sumitomo Chemical, opened a new solution styrene-butadiene rubber (S-SBR) manufacturing plant constructed in Singapore. Sumitomo Chemical has located the new S-SBR plant in Singapore because of various advantages the country offers, including its geographical proximity to the vigorously growing Asian market, and availability of a stable supply source for the raw material butadiene as well as benefits from tie-ups with existing businesses of the Sumitomo Chemical Group in the region.

Sumitomo Chemical’s S-SBR is manufactured by the Company’s proprietary production process technology and advanced polymer modification technology that is a key to achieving higher product performance. The S-SBR has won high praise from customers in the tire manufacturing industries both in Japan and overseas for being a highly fuel-efficient tire material with outstanding abrasion resistance. Going forward, Sumitomo Chemical will continue to expand its S-SBR business globally with increased production capabilities at the new plant in Singapore and its future expansions that are now under consideration, along with the existing 10,000 tonne per annum plant in Japan.
