Organic peroxides are used to manufacture polymer products like this flexible hose.

Sumitomo Chemical will build a plant in Ōita, Japan, to produce 1,3-diisopropanolbenzene, a precursor used by Nouryon to make its Perkadox 14 organic peroxide. Nouryon says the facility will support growing Asian demand for the organic peroxide, used to enhance the properties of elastomers. Sumitomo already produces the intermediate for Nouryon in Chiba, Japan.
