March 31, 2009

LANXESS, Pittsburgh, recently announced the completion of de-bottlenecking operations for its MESAMOLL® plasticizer and other alkyl sulfonic ester derivative plasticizers. It is expected that this move will help the company offer phthalate-free plasticizer solutions to global customers through the use of a continuous production process in a dedicated facility.

“The MESAMOLL family of products is an integral part of the Polymer Additives strategic market approach and puts LANXESS in a solid position to respond to a rapidly growing market demand,” said Jorge Noguiera, senior vice president and head of the Functional Chemicals Business Unit at LANXESS.
