Rohm and Haas increasing Brazilian production.

The Brazilian subsidiary of Rohm and Haas, Philadelphia, PA, is currently studying the possibility of producing vinyl-acrylic emulsions in Brazil by the beginning of next year. Initially, the Brazilian subsidiary would import some emulsion types from the U.S. to observe market reaction. If there is local interest, the company plans to invest nearly $1 million in this market. At present, the local emulsion market for all applications (furniture inks, adhesives and nonwovens) is estimated to be $235 million annually. The principal companies currently include BASF Brasileira, Hoechst do Brasil, Dow Quimica, Sandoz and Rhodia S/A.
