Dow Epoxy, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Co., recently announced it has completed its 30 KTA liquid epoxy resin (LER) expansion at its fully back-integrated Stade, Germany, site. The facility, which has now been ramped up to full production rates, will reportedly increase the company’s global LER capacity by 10%. This can improve the reliability of Dow’s supply chain and epoxy assets, allowing Dow to better serve its customers and to continue to grow with the marketplace.

“Our goal is to leverage and sell more epoxy resins and curing agents,” said Davor Safar, Global Resins leader for Epoxy. “Our strong integration is a powerful complement to our rapidly growing innovation portfolio, which will enable us to drive value growth for our customers.”
