Invista Nylon Chemicals (China) Co. announced plans to double its current nylon 6,6 polymer production at Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP) and signed a memorandum of cooperation with SCIP at a ceremony today. Following a 40,000-ton/year capacity increase in 2020, this new increased production, with an investment of 1.5 billion RMB (230 million USD), will double the plant capacity to 400,000 tons/year and strengthen Invista’s integrated nylon 6,6 value chain in China. The new capacity will also enable Invista to more quickly respond to the growing demand for engineering plastics in automotive, electrical and electronics, and other application fields.
