Chemtura Corporation (NYSE: CHMT) (EURONEXT: CHMT) announces the expansion of the Low Free (LF) MDI polyurethane elastomers production capacity at its Latina, Italy facility.

Chemtura manufactures the broadest line of Low Free prepolymers, including product families based on Low Free TDI, MDI, PPDI and HDI for cast elastomer applications and benefits from one of the most efficient and effective LF manufacturing processes in the industry.

ADIPRENE® LF MDI prepolymers form part of Chemtura’s premium MbOCA replacement technology, which offers improved processing over MbOCA-free alternatives and outstanding performance in the most demanding urethane applications. Chemtura’s increased manufacturing footprint in Italy will position the company to best respond to growth in customer demand following the restriction of MbOCA use within the EU REACH legislation applicable countries, for polyurethane production by 22nd November 2017. At the same time, the move allows Chemtura’s Gastonia facility greater flexibility to balance production between the different LF prepolymer chemistries.

Chemtura's Urethanes business is a world leader in hot-cast prepolymers and a leading manufacturer of specialty aqueous urethane dispersions, urethane surface coatings and polyester polyols.
