INVISTA plans to add 40,000 tonne of nylon 6,6 polymer capacity at its current 150,000-tonne polymer plant at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park (SCIP). Construction is targeted for mid-2019 and production would begin in 2020. “We are continuing to make strategic investments to best meet our customers’ needs,” said Pete Brown, INVISTA vice president of nylon polymer. “In looking at our forecast for the future growth of the nylon 6,6 polymer market, we see increased demand in Asia and are expanding our capacity to meet that demand.”
