ST. LOUIS—Solutia Inc. said its Flexsys subsidiary is planning to add insoluble sulphur capacity in Asia to serve growing market demand.
The company did not add further details.
James Voss, Solutia's Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, said the company's Technical Specialties unit has experienced increased demand, and Solutia remains confident in the growth of the Crystex business.
He did not mention the company's other rubber additives, except to say a $38 million charge associated with the previously announced closure of its Primary Accelerators operation.
The company recently lost its long-running dispute with Sinorgchem over intellectual property related to PPD materials.
