The project had CNY 779m ($120m) investment and contains 15kT/year IPDI capacity as well as 30kT/year IP capacity and 25kT/year IPDA capacity, according to its environmental impact report. It is located in a production site with a total area of 68,000 m2.
IPDI produced here will be marketed under the Wannate label.
The completion of the project makes Wanhua one of the few companies in the world and the first Asia-based company to employ what it calls the complete “IP-IPN-IPDA-IPDI” industry chain technology.
“After the successful global introduction of HMDI, HDI and their derivatives, the launch of Wannate IPDI will now complete our portfolio and satisfy the global market needs for high performance products” said Steven Sun, general manager of Wanhua’s ADI business unit.
