VILLEJUST, France (Nov. 21, 2008) — Eliokem Inc. said it will increase capacity and improve the quality of its Wingstay L antioxidant, thereby opening up new applications for the product.
The company will increase capacity to process increasing orders and meet fast growing demand in China and Asia, Eliokem said.
CEO Jacques Collonge said to demonstrate its commitment, Eliokem set new specifications for Wingstay L ex Ningbo with stringent limits on the content of residuals and the color of the material.
These improvements in quality, the company said, may open up applications, such as the stabilization of white polymers.
Wingstay L, manufactured at the company's production facility in Ningbo, China, is used in the protection of elastic threads and medical gloves as well as contributing to the stabilization of natural and synthetic polymers based on isoprene and butadiene.
