A new DuPont fluoropolymer production plant has begun operations in Changshu.
The plant, which produces polytetrafluoroethylene fine-powder and dispersion for global customers, with focus on Asia Pacific, marks a significant milestone in the company's strategic plan to establish a broader fluoroproducts manufacturing base in China.
"The opening of the Changshu plant supports our belief that it is a very good time to invest in PTFE production in China" said Cindy Green, vice president and general manager, DuPont Fluoroproducts. "DuPont's advanced, high-quality PTFE products already have established a leading position in the market and are delivering benefits to our customers around the world"
PTFE products are generally supplied to automobile, apparel, construction, aviation, chemical manufacturing, and consumer and industrial cookware industries.
