Styrolution (Frankfurt/Main, Germany) has inaugurated a plant located in Ulsan, South Korea for its Luran S acrylonitrile styrene acrylate (ASA) resins that have been impact-modified with acrylic ester rubber.
The new plant has a capacity of 43,000 tonnes per year, complementing current ASA capacity in Europe and North America, enabling Styrolution to offer customers in the Asia-Pacific region greater security of supply and shorter lead times.
