Bostik Opens Powder Plant
Bostik recently announced it has expanded its cementitious powder manufacturing capabilities with the recent opening of a new production plant near the Malaysian city of Johor Bahru. Johor Bahru is located on the southern tip of the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, separated from Singapore by the Johor Strait. Thus, the plant is reportedly ideally located to service a fast-developing local construction market. With a 1,500-sq-m footprint, the plant has a capacity estimated at 14,000 metric tons per year.
The new facility will manufacture several types of products for the construction industry, such as cementitious tile adhesives (CTA) including class C2S1, C2E and C1E, non-shrink grout and skim coat. These product groups are based on Bostik’s polymer-modified binder (PMB) technology platform, which remains a focus of the company’s ongoing innovation, research and development activities.
