Hexion Specialty Chemicals Inc., a global supplier of water-based tackifier dispersions for pressure-sensitive adhesives, has completed construction of a new, state-of-the-art dispersion manufacturing unit at its production facility in Baxley, GA.

The new unit incorporates Hexion’s proprietary ROBUSTTM manufacturing process technology, which produces tackifier dispersions with finer particle size and virtually zero grit.

“This multi-million dollar capital investment further strengthens Hexion’s leading position in the pressure sensitive adhesives industry by enabling the manufacture of both higher solids and higher softening point tackifier dispersions,” said Brad Crocker, vice president, Global Ink and Adhesive Resins. “We now have the ability to operate at production facilities on four continents using the same ROBUST process technology, providing our global customer base with the highest level of product consistency and performance.”
