CVC Thermoset Specialties, an Emerald Performance Materials company, is expanding its Akron, Ohio, facility, where the Hypro™ reactive liquid polymers (RLPs) are manufactured. The new reactor system has been commissioned and was scheduled to be on line by late October. The company planned the expansion in response to growing double-digit global demand for its specialty epoxy materials.

“We see great opportunity for our RLP platform,” said John Cech, president, CVC Thermoset Specialties division. “Growing demand for CVCs technology has been fueled by the increased use of adhesives and composites in more demanding end-use applications as formulators and OEMs seek to replace heavier metals with lighter-weight, corrosion-resistant materials. The new reactor at Akron enables us to keep pace with customer demand and positions us to further expand the range of our product offerings in the future. ”
