Sneak Peek: ExxonMobil to Significantly Expand Tackifier Production

ExxonMobil Chemical Co. has announced plans to build what is reportedly the world’s largest hydrogenated tackifier manufacturing facility at its recently expanded ExxonMobil to Significantly Expand Tackifier Productionpetrochemical complex in Singapore. The new 90-kiloton/year plant will nearly double the company’s capacity to manufacture high-performance Escorez™ 5000 resin for hot-melt adhesive producers worldwide. This will make the new plant 40% bigger than the industry’s largest hydrogenated tackifier plants today.

The company will also add facilities to manufacture premium halobutyl rubber at the Singapore complex. Engineering and procurement activities have begun, with construction expected to begin in the second half of 2014 and completion anticipated in 2017.

Stay tuned for additional coverage in ASI’s April issue, which will feature an article and podcast with Dwight Tozer, vice president of ExxonMobil’s Adhesion Industry business. ExxonMobil’s website is located at
