Chemdal to double production capacity.

Chemdal, Palatine, IL, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Colloid, recently began plans to double its operating capacity by the second quarter of 1993. The expansion will be centered at the facility in Aberdeen, MS.

Plans call for superabsorbent production to increase to 20,000 tons per year, up from 10,000 tons. The increase is in response to growing market demand for superabsorbent polymers that are used in baby diapers, sanitary napkins and adult incontinence products, fueled mainly by product design changes in the baby diaper market. South American demand is an area of possible future growth and further expansion plans beyond 1993 are already in the works.
