Dow Expands Manufacturing Capacity of MBS-based Additives at Grangemouth, Scotland Facility

Dow Plastics Additives, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, announced the construction of additional equipment to both expand capacity and advance its technology at its Grangemouth, Scotland, manufacturing facility. The expansion will significantly increase the capacity of methyl-methacrylate butadiene styrene (MBS) based additives to better serve the growing demands of Dow’s global customer base. The expansion is expected to be fully operational during the fourth quarter of 2011.  

The additional capacity of MBS products in Grangemouth, Scotland demonstrates Dow’s commitment to investing in its downstream performance businesses. The facility will increase Dow’s capacity for MBS-based additives by 10,000 tons per year and serve customers globally.

“With this expansion, Dow is increasing not only the total capacity, but also the technical capabilities of the plant to produce the most sophisticated MBS products in the world for our customers,” said Ruby Chandy, managing director for Dow Plastics Additives, “and the timing of this capacity increase will help us keep pace with increasing global demand for quality MBS additives.”
