Evonik's multi-user site at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park has been in operation since 2004. In 2014 the facilities were boosted further by the addition of our integrated production complex for isophorone and isophorone diamine. Spanning an area of 32,000 m² the facility serves our customers in the coatings, paint, construction, adhesives, and composite industries throghout Asia.
With a number of different businesses sharing the infrastructure at the Multi-User-Site-China (MUSC) at Shanghai's Chemical Industry Park, there are many cost, material supply and shared collaboration and production best practice benefits. Evonik’s €100 million investment in the new plants for isophorone (VESTASOL® IP) and isophorone diamine (VESTAMIN® IPD) production in 2014 helps our Crosslinkers business to continue its successful growth story in isophorone chemistry.
Now we are fully represented in the three major economic zones, Europe, NAFTA and Asia with fully back-integrated production facilities, and today Evonik remains the only company worldwide to cover the entire supply chain of isophorone and its derivatives. Our isophorone facility in Shanghai ensures we can quickly and reliably supply our customers in China and the entire Asia Pacific region directly from our local production by consistently offering them shorter lead times and the highest quality products to meet their diverse market needs.
In addition to the new production complex, our application technology service center features state-of-the-art laboratories at the Xinzhuang site in Shanghai.
