TPC Group Announces Progress on Polyisobutylene Capacity Expansion

TPC Group announced the progress of its comprehensive expansion program to increase polyisobutylene capacity. In early 2013 TPC embarked on an expansion effort to both debottleneck existing capacity and build additional capacity to meet the current and future needs of customers. Since commencing engineering work, TPC has increased polyisobutylene capacity by more than 10% versus 2012, and expects to add capacity in 2014 as further improvements are made. This debottlenecking effort is targeted to supply the current and near term needs of customers in the lubricant additives, sealants, adhesives and industrial lubricants markets. This project is targeted to satisfy expected future market growth, including that resulting from anticipated changes in lubricating oil standards, which will phase in during the next three years. These higher standards are driving increased use of highly reactive polyisobutylene, which TPC Group manufactures using a proprietary process.
