Dow, a subsidiary of DowDuPont (Midland, Michigan), recently announced a series of incremental methyl cellulose capacity investments, which the company says aims to help construction dry mix customers secure a supply of additives.

Dow says it will increase capacity in production at its manufacturing facilities in Bomlitz and Bitterfeld, Germany. The expansions represent a 19,000-metric-ton increase in capacity for Dow’s Walocel and Methocel cellulose ethers, which are used in a variety of applications for adhesives, grouts, fillers, levellers and joint compounds; reinforcing and bonding mortars for the External Thermal Insulation Composite System; gypsum plasters; and cement-based renders.

“We believe the industry will welcome these capacity announcements as further proof of our sustained growth strategy and commitment to supplying high-quality, innovative raw materials that help serve the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s dynamic construction industry,” said Jane Palmieri, Business President, Dow Polyurethanes, Chlor-Alkali & Vinyl and Construction Chemicals.

“Our customers not only need to meet current demand for such products, but also to drive ongoing performance enhancements in a competitive market. For this reason, we sustain our commitment to innovation and aim to broaden our product portfolio with differentiated solutions. ”

The new capacities are expected to come online in 2019 and 2020.
