The deal also includes polymer polyols (POP) production with polymer particles dispersed in PPG.
Goals and Experience
PPGs (polypropylene glycols) are chemical substances derived via the polymerization of alkylene oxides like ethylene oxide (EO) and propylene oxide (PO) to polyhydric alcohols. PPGs are the key feedstock used to produce polyurethanes that find application across a broad application range, such as furniture and bedding, automotive parts, paints and adhesives, and heat-insulating construction materials.
This demand for polyurethanes will likely increase globally in the near term. Japan is witnessing a rise in demand for high-value-added and high-performance polyurethanes as there are a few changes taking place in the market, like widespread smart homes, next-generation automobiles, sluggish demand for general-purpose products as well as rising environmental responsiveness. Additionally, the market competition with producers overseas in local as well as international markets is gradually turning cut-throat.
