Mobay's Polysar Rubber Division.
A major expansion of ethylene propylene rubber capacity at Mobay's Polysar Rubber Division plant in Orange, TX, boosted annual production from 36,000 tons to 52,000 tons. The two-year, $36 million expansion program began in 1989. Some parts of the new plant have recently come on-stream and are being used in trial production. The entire line should be in operation by the end of 1991. A significant advantage of the expanded plant facility is that it enables the company to produce two grades of EPR at the same time. In addition to the new EPR production line, a new warehouse and expanded technical support laboratory facilities were built on the Orange, TX site.
