The annual production capacity is expected to be 20,000 metric tons per year and could begin operations by the end of 2018.

The new HHCR product line would supplement the existing portfolio of Rain Carbon’s hydrocarbon resins marketed world-wide under the brand name NOVARES® produced at RÜTGERS’ sites in Duisburg, Germany, and Uithoorn, The Netherlands.

State-of-the Art Production Expertise

“State-of-the art production expertise and a new first-class technology center will enable Rain Carbon Inc. to supply its customers with a next generation of hydrocarbon resins.” said Uwe Holland, Managing Director of RÜTGERS NOVARES GmbH. Industrial resins are important additives for car rubber products including tires, coatings and adhesives.

This new product line would allow Rain Carbon Inc. to capitalize on the increasing demand for more hygienic and colorless grades of adhesives known as “water white” resins.

Gerry Sweeney, President of Rain Carbon Inc. also commended the effort saying: “The project would strategically support the company’s continued drive to diversify its high value chemical products portfolio.”
