Lanxess expands production of Rhenodiv for tyre industry at Jhagadia
Manufacture of high-performance tyres and moulded elastomer products relies on the use of effective release agents like Rhenodiv made by speciality chemicals company Lanxess.
Specialty chemicals company Lanxess laid the foundation stone for its Business Unit Rhein Chemie’s new and upcoming production line for Rhenodiv new technology release agents at its Jhagadia site in Gujarat yesterday. With this facility, the business unit will serve the growing demand of the Indian tyre and rubber goods market.
The new production line will feature state-of-the-art equipment and technology and enables Lanxess to produce high-quality technology tyre release agents more efficiently. Currently, Lanxess has such a facility in Argentina. Once this facility becomes operational, it will cater to the Indian sub-continent and Asian markets.
Manufacture of high-performance tyres and moulded elastomer products relies on the use of effective release agents. Process safety and low scrap rates are key for the efficient production of tyres and moulded elastomer articles. Lanxess states that Rhenodiv release agents are strictly water-based, solvent-free and free of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and, therefore, environmentally friendly. Lanxess Rhein Chemie business unit has the solutions, market understanding, production knowledge and comprehensive service to support its customers at every stage of the process chain.
The laying of the foundation stone was done by Dr. Jens Hendrik Fischer, Global BU Head of Rhein Chemie, Dr. Holger Graf, Global Head of Production and Namitesh Roy Choudhury, Vice- Chairman and Managing Director, Lanxess India, along with U Parmeshwara Sriganesh, BU Head Rhein Chemie India region.
The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2024.
