Specialty chemicals provider Nouryon has completed a production capacity expansion of nearly 50% for its Levasil® colloidal silica products at its manufacturing facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin. According to Nouryon, the capacity increase addresses rising demand for colloidal silica, particularly in North America, and strategically expands its global colloidal silica manufacturing footprint to serve both regional and global customers.
“Growing demand for Levasil colloidal silica, particularly in North America, is the driver of the expansion at our production facility,” said Patrick Wilhelm, vice President Inorganic Specialties at Nouryon. “New factories for batteries, electric vehicles, and semiconductors in artificial intelligence applications are driving the rising customer demand. This latest capacity increase will enable us to serve global customers with our high-quality solutions.”
Derived from the natural ingredients of sand and water, Nouryon’s colloidal silica offer versatility and serve a variety of end-markets. Among other applications, they are used by admixture companies to increase the durability and strength in concrete.
