LG Chem will spend $100 million to increase its output of polarizers used in liquid-crystal displays. Polarizers are multilayered optical filters that help create images from the light that passes through the liquid crystals inside televisions and mobile devices. LG already operates two polarizer production linesin Nanjing, China, with a combined capacity of 40 million m2. The new project will boost capacity there by 50%. Once the expansion is completed, LG will be able to produce enough polarizers in China to annually fit 24 million 42-inch TVs.
