Asahi chemical plans to double the production capacity of synthetic rubber within five years.

it is reported that Asahi chemical company (AKC), a subsidiary of Asahi chemical company, announced that it will finally approve its development plan for fiscal year 2013, and will also double the production capacity of synthetic rubber and elastomer within five years, that is, from the current 210000 tons/year to 450000 tons/year, and plans to achieve annual sales revenue in fiscal year 2017 Large projects such as Nortel South transmission have adopted high-strength superconducting cables to break 100billion yen (about 1.28 billion US dollars)

Asahi chemical (AKC) announced in October 2010 that it would build a 100000 ton/year solution polymerized styrene butadiene rubber (SSBR) project in two phases on Jurong Island, Singapore, and the construction has been started at present. The first phase of the project, with a design capacity of 50000 tons/year, will be put into operation in February 2013, three months ahead of the original plan. The second phase of the project is planned to be completed by the end of 2014 or early 2015, reaching a production capacity of 100000 tons/year

according to the company, it also plans to build another solution polymerized styrene butadiene rubber (SSBR) project with a capacity of more than 100000 tons/year in 2017, which may be located in Southeast Asia, the Middle East or Eastern Europe, mainly considering the supply of butadiene raw materials. Asahi has developed a butadiene production technology called bb-flex. The new process uses butane left by C4 fraction after extracting butadiene and isobutene as raw material to produce butadiene. Now it is considering to build a 50000 ton/year unit in Shuidao around 2014. The company said it will also cooperate with overseas ethylene cracking producers or refiners to build a butadiene unit of bb-flex process overseas

for the elastomer business, Asahi Chemical Co., Ltd. is considering building a new production capacity overseas. The machine has been parked for a long time after use, resulting in the corrosion of slide valves and the failure of sediment in the fitting gap. Therefore, through experiments, the failure has been basically eliminated after cleaning, grinding or grinding. The 10000 ton/year SBS project. SBS block copolymer is a variety of SBCs with the largest output (accounting for more than 70%), the lowest cost and wide application. It is made of styrene Butadiene is a triblock copolymer with monomer, which has the characteristics of plastic and rubber. It is called "the third generation synthetic rubber", and is widely used in diapers, waterproof asphalt, polypropylene modifier, etc
