Celanese formally dedicated its 10th global polymer emulsions facility today in Nanjing, China, as part of the inaugural celebration of its integrated chemical complex.  The new plant will provide customers throughout Asia with high performance, environmentally friendly latex emulsions for use in the adhesives, nonwovens, glass fiber and low odor, architectural coatings markets. Although the plant is new, Celanese has been serving the region for more than two years with high-quality vinyl-acetate/ethylene, vinyl and acrylic-based waterborne emulsions through its expert commercial and technical teams based in Shanghai.

As part of the festivities, customers toured the new emulsions facility where Doug Madden, president of Acetate, Emulsions, PVOH and AT Plastics, remarked that the ceremony underscored the company’s continued commitment to the Asian Marketplace.  “China and the entire Asian region remain an integral part of our strategic growth plans for Celanese and the emulsions business,” Mr. Madden said.  “Our investment in this state-of-the-art emulsions facility as well as our new technology center in Shanghai to be completed next year, demonstrate our commitment to supplying high-performance polymers to this growing marketplace.”

Celanese is also staffing a new laboratory in nearby Shanghai with industry experts to support coating, adhesive, nonwovens and glass fiber customers.
