Harlow/Stallingborough -- Synthomer announced the opening of a multi-million Euro investment at its Lithene® (liquid polybutadiene) facility located at Stallingborough in the UK. The Lithene® product range is sold globally for use in a diverse range of applications, including automotive sealants, mold release products, coating additives and rubber modifiers. The new Lithene®ultra range of products will provide customers with significantly enhanced quality and performance across a broader range of applications. Lithene®ultra will be available from September 2013 with maleinised grades being launched during the final quarter of this year.

"The development of Lithene®ultra comes in response to growing customer demand for low odor and low VOC applications. This latest investment reflects a continued commitment to providing customers with market leading products for a wide range of applications and is one phase of a wider development programme for our Lithene® product range," said Ian Wilkinson, General Manager Performance Polymers.
