Bayer's North American Rubber Group.

Bayer's North American Rubber Group announced that customers are now receiving halobutyl from its newly expanded Butyl II plant in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada. The Butyl II expansion, a $100 million investment and commitment to the rubber business of Bayer, is the company's response to increasing demand from the butyl markets, the largest of which is the tire industry. Modifications to the existing Butyl II facility make it possible for the unit to produce both regular and halogenated butyl rubber. The expansion project has increased Sarnia's total butyl production capacity to 140 thousand metric tons. Bayer also announced it is changing the name of its butyl product line. The full line of butyl products worldwide will now carry the Bayer name, including Bayer Butyl, Bayer Bromobutyl and Bayer Chlorobutyl.
