YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-11-29 15:30:00 – Shanghai

Invista opens a new state-of-the-art, nylon 6,6 facility in China. The new facility includes a 215,000-ton hexamethylene diamine (HMD) plant and a 150,000-ton polymer plant, at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP). The opening of new nylon plant looks to meet the growing demand for products using the fibre such as hosiery and other apparel.

As a world leader throughout the nylon 6,6 value chain, Invista is proud to have built this new facility with its most advanced technologies and provide a local supply base to support their customers’ growing demand in China and Asia, said Kevin Robles, Invista’s senior vice president of global Operations.

Their constant commitment to environmental health and safety excellence was underscored by this project’s completion with nearly 10 million safe work hours.

Bill Greenfield, president of Invista Intermediates, said that they believe that China’s continued strong GDP growth will drive increasing demand for durable goods—products that can be enhanced by the use of nylon 6,6.

Known for its strength at high temperature as well as impact, chemical and abrasion resistance, nylon 6,6 offers significant advantages in many applications over other materials that have traditionally been used in China.

Invista's nylon 6,6 products are used in applications such as apparel and industrial textiles, air bags, carpet, coatings and more

Invista’s new facility will help advance the development of the nylon 6,6 industry in China, in line with national industry development goals.
