DuPont Engineering Polymers will meet increasing demand for its Zytel HTN high-performance polyamides with a new polymer plant capable of producing 30 million pounds per year. The new facility in Richmond, VA, is scheduled for startup by the end of 2004. The expansion more than doubles the capacity for these materials, which have been experiencing double-digit growth rates, according to DuPont. Zytel HTN materials target applications needing superior mechanical properties and resistance to elevated temperatures, moisture, and chemicals. Visit www.plastics.dupont.com.
