Mitsui Chemicals Commencing Operations at Augmented Production Facilities for Thermoplastic Olefinic Elastomer MILASTOMER™

Mitsui Chemicals Commencing Operations at Augmented Production Facilities for Thermoplastic Olefinic Elastomer MILASTOMER™

Mitsui Chemicals, Inc. has been working on a one-line production augmentation (5,000 tons/annum) for MILASTOMER™ at its wholly owned domestic subsidiary Sun Alloys Co., Ltd., in response to an upswing in demand for thermoplastic olefinic elastomers. Operations at the facility commenced on October 1.

This will increase the company’s annual domestic production capacity for MILASTOMER™ from 20,000 to 25,000 tons.

MILASTOMER™ is a light-weight, soft resin with low density and excellent moldability. Demand has grown significantly for uses in automotive materials, gaskets and civil engineering joint fillers, building materials, and grips, and is expected to continue to expand around the world in line with wider uses in automotive interiors, weather strips, steering bellows and as air bag covers. The purpose of augmenting MILASTOMER™ production is to actively cater to growing demand such as this.
