Great Lakes Chemical Corporation recently expanded production capacity at its Pyongtaek, Korea, plant for its Lowinox 1790 phenolic antioxidant.

The high performance antioxidant is used in polyurethane fibres and polyolefins applications.

“Making an investment to increase production capacity of this key antioxidant supports the emerging needs of both the polymer industry and, particularly, our customers in the polyurethane fibres and polyolefins markets. This major capacity expansion for Lowinox 1790 further ensures that Great Lakes can meet future demand for this product,” said Maurizio Butti, executive vice president of polymer stabilizers.

The additional capacity at Pyongtaek is fully installed and production of Lowinox 1790 is in full stream. This latest investment makes Great Lakes the world’s leading producer of this type of high performance phenolic antioxidant, with production capacities in both Europe and Asia.
