Using proprietary technology, the plant is designed to produce both highly reactive PIB (HR-PIB) and enhanced PIB (E-PIB), which substitutes for conventional PIB in many applications. The expansion will double the company's existing production capacity, with a significant portion of this capacity committed to long-term contracted customers, but unreserved capacity is available for new customers seeking to expand their PIB supply.
Texas Petrochemicals is the only merchant producer of HR-PIB in North America, where its application is in lubes and fuel additives, and E-PIB, which is used in a variety of product applications, including caulks, sealants, adhesives, and cling film. The company services PIB markets worldwide, which include both industrial and fuel and lubricant additive markets.
