Huntsman Corp. recently announced a major step toward expanding one of its key product lines by launching a multi-million dollar in-depth engineering study at its McIntosh, AL, facility. The expanded capacity will reportedly serve the current and future needs of the company’s customers in the aerospace and composite industries. Once completed, the new line will further boost global production of all types of multifunctional epoxy resins.

“Demand for multifunctional epoxy resins, as a replacement for aluminum and other materials, and the forecasted needs of the aerospace industry are major factors influencing this decision,” said James Huntsman, president of the Advanced Materials division. “We are committed to our valued customers in the aerospace and high-end composite industries.”
