BASF will build a new engineering plastic composite plant in South Korea.
BASF plans to build a new PA and PBT composite plant in Yesan, South Korea. It is expected to start construction in the first half of 2014 and put into operation at the end of 2015
the initial capacity of the plant is set at 36000 tons/year, and the later capacity will be more than twice the total capacity of BASF's engineering plastics in South Korea. In addition, BASF's compound plant in Pudong, Shanghai will increase its annual production capacity in Asia from 130000 tons, including the current high-end material industry, to 225000 tons
the new plant will produce Ultramid PA and ultradur PBT. These two products can be used in automotive parts and electronic and electrical industries, including seat structure, oil pan module, sensor, engine foot, connector and highly integrated laser structure. The electric machine is digital display, adopts frequency conversion speed regulation, automatic shutdown when breaking, and can set automatic return sub equipment
in 2011, BASF expanded the capacity of its compound plant in Anshan, South Korea, from 17000 T/A to 30000 T/A. In addition, BASF has also announced that its Pudong plant will be expanded, and the engineering plastic production capacity will increase by 65000 tons/year in the next 10 years. The first phase of the expansion project will be completed in 2013, and the second phase will be completed in 2015 to realize the large-scale production of complex plastic parts of batteries. Before the expansion, the capacity of Pudong plant was 45000 tons/year. In addition to China and South Korea, BASF has also established similar composite plants in Malaysia and India
PA and PBT produced by BASF Korean factory are mainly used in the automotive field, such as Korean Hyundai concept car
