Eastman Chemical Company has completed the expansion of the Regalite hydrogenated hydrocarbon resin facility in the Netherlands.
The Regalite resins will meet the growing demand for high-quality tackifier resins suited for various kinds of thermoplastic polymers used in adhesives, sealants and polymer compounds.
The expansion will increase the capacity of the existing facility by 65%.
Eastman's Middelburg site manager Rien Jonker said that this has been one of the biggest expansions of the Eastman Chemical Company in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region in the last decade.
"Investments in Middelburg are a part of Eastman's overall growth and investment strategy for hydrogenated hydrocarbon resins," Jonker said.
