Nouryon to Increase Colloidal Silica Production Capacity in the U.S.
Nouryon plans to expand production capacity at its Levasil® colloidal silica manufacturing facility in Green Bay, Wisc., to meet increasing demand from the construction and packaging end-markets. Construction of the facility expansion in Green Bay is planned to be finalized in the second half of 2022.
“We are pleased to support our customers’ growth, which is fueled by large governmental infrastructure projects as well as increasing demand in packaging materials driven by e-commerce,” said Patrick Wilhelm, vice president of inorganic specialties at Nouryon.
According to the company, Levasil colloidal silica products are used in construction applications to provide durability to structures such as bridges and buildings. Levasil products are also used to create anti-slip surfaces in packaging applications.
