Dow Performance Monomers Increases Capacity of Glycidyl Methacrylate Used in Specialty Coatings and Resins

30-Aug-2011 - USA

The Performance Monomers business of The Dow Chemical Company announces a 10% increase in capacity for the production of Glycidyl Methacrylate (GMA) at its Freeport, Texas facility.  This results from a successful debottlenecking initiative that addresses Dow’s need to increase GMA capacity for its strategic customers.  Key drivers for this effort include improving process and mechanical reliability. 

David Mongrue, Global Business Manufacturing Director for Performance Monomers states, “Through the GMA debottlenecking initiative, Dow made significant process and reliability improvements, which delivered a considerable increase in plant capacity in less than a year.   This further reinforces Dow’s commitment towards delivering on our strategy of being a highly reliable organization and growing with our strategic customers.”
