BASF PETRONAS Chemicals to Expand Production Capacity in Malaysia
BASF PETRONAS Chemicals has planned to expand its production capacity of the acrylic acid plant and butyl acrylate plants at its Verbund site in Kuantan, Malaysia.

Supporting the Growing Demand


The capacity expansion is expected to come on stream by 2021. The expansion aims to support the growing demand for acrylic monomers in Asia Pacific.

Acrylic acid is used in the manufacturing of acrylic esters, superabsorbent polymers and water treatment chemicals, while butyl acrylate is mostly used in paints and coatings, adhesives and construction chemicals.
