The Performance Products division of Huntsman Corp. recently announced that it is proceeding with the engineering design for a 40,000-ton capacity expansion program at its Singapore polyetheramine facility. The company plans to invest more than $70 million at its Jurong Island plant in a move that will more than double the site’s manufacturing capabilities, help with increasing global demand for polyetheramines and strengthen the company’s leadership position in this technology.
Polyetheramines are typically used in epoxy coatings or in additives that enhance the performance of fuels, concrete, and pesticides. With new amine applications emerging all the time, Huntsman is forecasting significant mid-term growth in the sector.
