WR Grace, Dow to collaborate on new catalysts for polypropylene production

April 02/2012

(hydrocarbonprocessing) -- W.R. Grace & Co. has entered into an agreement with Dow Chemical to develop new catalysts for polypropylene production, officials said on Thursday.

The catalysts, which use one of Dows non-phthalate internal donor technologies and Grace proprietary catalyst expertise, will be sold by Grace under the HYAMPP brand.

HYAMPP catalysts are non-phthalate catalysts with industry-leading activity and performance benefits, and represent sixth-generation technology.

They enable producers to make resins that improve the performance of plastics, including better clarity, stiffness and impact strength, providing a pathway to new applications requiring more demanding properties that cannot be met by current generation catalysts.

Customers can use the resins in a broad range of applications such as films, high-performance pipe, automobile parts, household appliances and household containers. Grace expects to begin commercial production of the new catalysts in 2012, it said.

We are continuously looking for ways to better meet the needs of our customers and the end-users of their products, said Tony Dondero, vice president and general manager of Graces specialty catalysts and process technologies product line.
