Asahi Glass Company Announces Aflas Fluoroelastomer Capacity Increase

Asahi Glass Company (AGC) announced a major capacity increase for Aflas fluoroelastomers. This expansion at AGC Chiba Plant in Japan will increase AGC Aflas production capacity by 50%.

Construction is scheduled to begin shortly with startup by the end of March 2006. Project costs are expected to be about 1.8 billion yen or 16.8 million USD.

According to Adam J. Brozzetti, AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc. vice president of sales and marketing, this new capacity is necessary to meet the rapidly increasing demand for Aflas in the automotive, wire and cable marketplaces worldwide. Brozzetti commented: "The unique properties of Aflas such as excellent chemical resistance and good performance at high temperatures makes it a cost-effective solution in situations where other elastomers would fail."

Aflas fluoroelastomers are marketed exclusively in the US by AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc , a wholly owned subsidiary of AGC.
