Freeport, New York -- Isocyanate producer Vencorex has completed its expansion and now producing its Easaqua range of crosslinkers for waterborne PU applications in North America.
With this new production chain, the Freeport site can now offer to its customers the complete range of derivatives owned by Vencorex, the company said.
This expansion is part of the firm’s intention to strengthen its global aliphatic isocyanates offering, which include HDI, IPDI, Tolonate and Easaqua grades and new products.
Vencorex sees “the investment adding strategic importance with increased reliability in the zone, with the potential to further support growth in the Americas in the coming years,” the firm added.
The company announced its Freeport plans in October 2014, as reported at UTECH-polyurethane.com at the time.
Easaqua is a crosslinker for waterborne polyurethane alternatives to conventional solvent-based coatings.
