Evonik Industries, Essen, Germany, has announced plans to build a new plant for their polymethacrylimide structural foam ROHACELL in Shanghai, China.

The plant is scheduled to begin operation in the fourth quarter of 2015.

“Our investment in Shanghai reflects a strategic decision to bring our products closer to the customer, as well as our continued commitment to a region that is a key growth market,” said Dr. Joachim Leluschko, Head of High Performance Polymers Business Line at Evonik.

Currently two plants – in Darmstadt, Germany and Mobile, Alabama, USA – supply customers in Asia. The new facility will be located in Evonik’s Multi-User Site China (MUSC) in Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP).

According to Evonik, the lightweight material ROHACELL is already being used in Asia’s aviation industry, including the regional jet ARJ21-700 and also the prototype of China’s first large commercial airliner C919 that is scheduled to enter commercial service in 2018.
