Momentive Performance Materials Inc. recently announced it will expand production capacity for silanes at its manufacturing facilities in Sistersville, WV, and Termoli, Italy, to help meet growing demand from its global customer base, particularly in China. Capacity for amino silanes will be increased at the Sistersville location, while capacity for vinyl silanes will be increased at Termoli. In addition, Momentive will resume production for trimethoxysilane (TMS), Silquest A-187* epoxy silane and Silquest A-174* methacryl silane at the Sistersville location before the end of the year. Projects are under way at both sites, and completion is expected in 2012.

“These investments in manufacturing capacity will enable us to bring innovative silane technologies and products to the industry more quickly and better serve our customers’ growing need for these materials,” said Rich Owins, director of Global Business, Silanes. “Our customers in the plastic additives, adhesives, sealants, tire and coatings and other industries are increasingly turning to our cutting-edge silanes formulations to provide enhanced performance characteristics in their end products.”
