Perstorp doubles Capa caprolactone plant production capacity in UK

Speciality chemicals company Perstorp has doubled production capacity of its Capa caprolactone plant in Warrington, UK.

Caprolactones are used in applications such as resin modification, waterborne PUD coatings, cast elastomers, hot-melt adhesives, support material for top-quality shoes and modern orthopaedic brace supports.

The second Capa stream is based on the same proprietary technology as its first stream, the company said.

Perstorp Sales and Business Development Asia director Bob Wasson said now the second stream is in operation.
