Himont, part of the Ferruzzi-Montedison Group, has licensed its Spheripol process and Addipol process polypropylene technologies to Daelim Industrial, in Seoul, Korea. Under the license, Daelim will build a plant in Yeochon, Korea, expected to be in operation in late 1992. Initial capacity will be 80,000 metric tons per year. Himont's Spheripol process uses advanced types of catalysts that allows polypropylene manufacturers to obtain a broad range of spherical form polymers at low investment and operating costs, the company said. The Addipol process stems from the Spheripol process, and provides a method for direct, topical application of commercially available additives to the spheriform product. This process is said to eliminate the need for an extrusion stage.
