Amplified Production Capacity of Arlanxeo’s CR Plant to Augment Market Growth

Arlanxeo, the world's largest producer of synthetic rubber announced the competition of its CR plant in Germany, allowing for an annual production of up to 70,000 metric tonnes of CR. The company owns the largest NBR facility in the world. The company is constantly spending on high-performance elastomer products CR (chloroprene rubber) and NBR (nitrile butadiene rubber) and laying the foundation for production improvement to cater to the increasing global demand of these polymers. The multiple million Euro investment will upgrade and enhance the plant, in turn boosting the flexibility and capability of the plant to produce specialty products. The substantial development in the NBR plant in La Wantzenau, France is aimed to aid the establishment of the latest technology standards. Through this investment, the company will cater to the high-quality NBR rubbers demand and strengthen its position as the leading global NBR supplier.

Rising Development of Novel Products to Boost Market Sales

The rising demand from packaging, manufacturing, engineering, and construction industries will create opportunities for the market in the forthcoming years. The combination of rubber, polymers and chemicals offers robust capabilities in the production of surgical supplies, respirators, pacemakers, and feeding nipples.  Thus, numerous companies are applying this polymer in the manufacturing of products like drive belts, air brake diaphragms, and conveyors. These products are built from calendared or coated rubber on a revolving or stationary drum. Similarly, non-reinforced ones are formed and cured for the formation of sponge rubber. Hence, the growing demand for various products will directly influence its production, which, in turn, will favor the market.
