LANXESS announces capacity expansion for corrosion inhibitor products
Specialty chemicals company LANXESS has successfully completed a debottlenecking project resulting in a 15 percent increase in global production capacity of its Additin RC 4000 series of corrosion inhibition additives. The additional capacities are a result of process synergies identified and realized following LANXESS’s 2017 acquisition of Chemtura Corporation, which expanded its lubricant additives portfolio and global production network.
“With LANXESS’s increased footprint from the Chemtura acquisition, we were able to unlock process synergies between our production sites in Mannheim, Germany and West Hill, Canada to increase output of our corrosion inhibitors products to meet market demand and further enhance our global production network,” said Martin Saewe, Head of the Lubricant Additives business line in LANXESS’s Additives (ADD) business unit.
