Bayer Corporation's Paper Colorants and Chemicals Business Unit has opened a new Technology Center in Woodbridge, Conn., 10 miles north of New Haven, the corporation announced today.

The Center, a former Bayer pharmaceutical research facility built in 1999, has been upgraded into an ultramodern, 25,000-square-foot facility with ample room for expansion. It features specialty laboratories for paper pulping and sheet forming, modern paper testing laboratories and a print quality lab. The facility focuses on research and application development of strength resins and sizing and surface chemicals.

"This Woodbridge Technology Center will centralize the Paper Colorants and Chemicals Business Unit's technical activities in the NAFTA region," said Dr. David Dauplaise, the unit's Director of Technology. The Center is now staffed with 24 chemists and paper technologists, he added.

The unit's Global Application Technology Group is also based at the Center.

It supports new product introductions, provides product trial support and develops advanced applications for Bayer paper colorants and chemicals products worldwide.

"Bayer has made a substantial commitment to paper chemical technology at this Center," Dauplaise said. "It underscores the value and necessity of continued technological innovation for the long-term viability of our business. The facility will provide us with the tools to keep the pipeline of new product innovations flowing for years to come," he said.
