UBE: In-house compounding successfully launched in Spain
Hamburg, 17 August 2017 – The signs for future growth continue to look promising for NRC Group-partner UBE: the company just recently held the official launch of its own in-house compounding processes at its plant in Castellón, Spain.
Back in February of this year, UBE acquired all of the machinery required and completed the necessary superstructures. Afterwards, production of non-reinforced PA6 and PA12 grades went as planned and received internal approval. Sampling for customers began in May, and to date numerous other approvals have also been awarded.
For The NRC Group as a distributor as well as for end customers, UBE's new in-house solution provides two key advantages: the use of several production sites ensures a steady supply of materials and the products manufactured in Spain are of EU origin.
To further improve technical support, UBE's R&D team recently purchased a laboratory compounder with which to develop innovative, high-tech polyamides.
UBE's research experts provide technical support, material and application development services, and marketing in support of other departments as well as extrusion (films, monofilaments, tubes, profile und blow molds) and injection molding (raw materials and specialties).
