Dow Corning has announced completion of an integrated silicone manufacturing site in Zhangjiagang, China, jointly owned by Dow Corning and its joint venture partner. The combined $1.8 billion investment is China’s largest facility of this kind of integrated silicone production sites. The site includes a siloxane plant and a pyrogenic silica plant, both of which are jointly owned by Dow Corning and its joint venture partner. In addition, the site features finished silicone production plants, which are owned and operated independently by each company.

The facility will ensure supply and shorten delivery times for Chinese and Asian customers who purchase XIAMETER® brand silicones, said Shelley Bausch, vice president and global executive director of the XIAMETER brand. “As customers expand in this region, we are investing to expand with them to supply the silicone materials critical to their manufacturing processes,” she said.
