CFCM Nouryon 400

Nouryon plans to expand production capacity at its Levasil colloidal silica manufacturing facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin, to meet increasing demand from the Construction and Packaging end markets. The facility expansion is planned to be finalized in the second half of 2022.

"The capacity expansion at our manufacturing facility in Green Bay is driven by growing demand for Levasil colloidal silica products in North America," said Patrick Wilhelm, Vice President of Inorganic Specialties at Nouryon. "We are pleased to support our customers' growth, which is fueled by large governmental infrastructure projects as well as increasing demand in packaging materials driven by e-commerce."

Nouryon's Levasil colloidal silica products are versatile and support several end markets. A product of two natural ingredients – sand and water – Levasil colloidal silica enhances and improves key functionalities and sustainability profiles of other products and manufacturing processes. In construction applications, Levasil products provide durability to structures such as bridges and buildings. Levasil products are also used to create anti-slip surfaces in packaging applications – making stacking and handling of finished products more accessible and more efficient. 

"By investing in our global network of Levasil colloidal silica manufacturing facilities, we are further strengthening our manufacturing footprint to grow with our sustainable solutions and enhancing our ability to supply our construction and packaging customers in the U.S. and around the world," said Johan Landfors, Executive Vice President and President Technology Solutions and Europe at Nouryon.

PPG Copper Armour Paint

PPG announced that the company has received U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) registration for its PPG COPPER ARMOR antimicrobial paint containing Corning Guardiant technology, proven to kill 99.9% of bacteria and viruses on the painted surface, including SARS-CoV-2, in two hours.

The Copper Armor product’s efficacy was measured using tests that simulate real-world contamination that are mandated by the EPA for products making claims against harmful pathogens. Following this registration, PPG will begin selling the product in late 2021 through U.S. PPG PAINTS stores, independent retailers and select home improvement stores.
