Momentive To Boost Silanes Facilities

by Michael McCoy
August 29, 2011 | APPEARED IN VOLUME 89, ISSUE 35

Momentive Performance Materials will expand capacity for silanes at its plants in Sistersville, W.Va., and Termoli, Italy. The Albany, N.Y.-based firm will increase capacity for amino silanes in Sistersville and for vinyl silanes in Termoli. In addition, Momentive will resume production of trimethoxysilane, Silquest A-187 epoxy silane, and Silquest A-174 methacryl silane in Sistersville. The firm says growing demand from global customers, particularly in China, is behind the project, which it expects to complete next year.
