Americhem renovates lab and opens concept centre in China


Americhem Inc., a global provider of colour and additive solutions for plastics and synthetic fibres, has launched a new customer concept centre in Suzhou and renovated laboratory. The facility gives customers a practical and innovative space to develop products and collaborate with Americhem technical experts.

“The new concept centre is an exceptional place to showcase our core products and technologies,” remarked Stanley Teoh, Americhem’s Vice-President/Managing Director for the Asia Pacific region.

“We are pleased to provide a space for our customers to view product samples, discover functional additives and compounds, work in partnership with our experts on new products and utilize our colour training centre.”

The concept centre houses a wide selection of end-product samples and technical solutions for synthetic fibres, nonwovens, building products, medical and other speciality engineered compounds. There is also a training centre with educational resources on color theory, product development and colour control for visitors.

Synthetic fibre colour libraries are available for a wide array of applications including carpet, apparel, automotive and industrial fabrics, and synthetic turf. Polymers represented for these libraries include PA, PET, PTT, PP, PE and PLA.

The concept centre has a complete offering of nShield antimicrobial concentrates and compounds for the plastics and synthetic fibre industries. In addition, customers can work with nVision polymeric soluble colours for polypropylene nonwovens and mBrace softeners for nonwoven fabrics. Also featured are eCap PVC and ASA capstock compounds and nGrain simulated woodgrain effects for building products such as decking, railing, fencing and roofing.

Americhem says its laboratory renovations will expand the company’s capacity to develop next generation products. There is more room for technical collaboration with product experts and an expanded capacity to develop products with increased speed to market. Pilot equipment allows customers to test new colour and additive products in real time.

This year is also Americhem’s tenth anniversary for its Suzhou facility, thus commemorating its presence in Asia Pacific.
