Röhm invests more in expansion to impact-resistant PLEXIGLAS® molding compounds capacities
- High delivery reliability and flexibility for impact-resistant PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate)
- Plant set to commence operations as early as June 2022
Just a few months ago, Röhm announced the expansion of production facilities for PLEXIGLAS® molding compounds in Worms (Germany) and Shanghai (China). Now Röhm is further driving the growth of the company by the additional expansion of capacities for impact-resistant PLEXIGLAS®, the brand polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) from Röhm.
A new section is currently being added to a plant producing impact-resistant PLEXIGLAS® Resist special molding compounds in Worms. The plant is scheduled to commence production as early as June 2022. “As a reliable partner to clients around the globe, we will be able to guarantee the best possible delivery reliability and flexibility”, believes Chief Operations Officer (COO) Hans-Peter Hauck. Thanks to a modular concept, further potential expansion stages are also planned.
There is especially strong demand for PLEXIGLAS® Resist molding compounds from Röhm in the automotive, construction and lighting industries; they are also used in many household appliance applications. “By expanding our capacity, we are responding to the persistently high demand for impact-resistant materials,” says Siamak Djafarian, Senior Vice President Business Unit Molding Compounds. Impact-resistant PLEXIGLAS® is particularly well-suited for applications requiring durability, UV and weather resistance as well as higher impact strength.
