SINGAPORE (ICIS)–Nouryon has started full-scale production at its organic peroxide greenfield site in Tianjin, China, the specialty chemicals firm said on Wednesday.

The Tianjin site houses three manufacturing facilities aimed at meeting the increasing demand from packaging, paints and coatings, and construction customers in the region, the company said in a statment.

Organic peroxides are essential to produce a wide range of polymers used in the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and composites industry for products like window profiles, artificial marble, coating resins, blood bags and other medical packaging materials.

In Asia, Nouryon produces organic peroxides in Ningbo and Tianjin, China, in Asa, Japan and in Mahad, India.

Recently Nouryon also announced another new facility start-up in Ningbo, supplying two key intermediates for polymers and composites production.
