Ascend to demonstrate quality, consistency of supply for Vydyne® PA66 at Plastindia

HOUSTON – February 5, 2018 – Ascend Performance Materials, the world’s largest fully integrated producer of nylon 6,6 resin, will demonstrate its ability to provide cost-effective solutions across markets at Plastindia 2018. Ascend will showcase its reliability of supply and the diversity of products made with its signature Vydyne® PA66, including cable ties, automotive engine compartment components and consumer and industrial products, especially cooking utensils.

Global demand for the company’s nylon 6,6 products continues to grow annually at around four percent. To stay ahead of demand, Ascend is increasing production capacity for polymers and intermediates by 10 to 15 percent this year. Ascend’s unique technology allows it to add capacity quickly and efficiently, without disrupting operations.

“We are committed to a continuous, reliable supply to our customers,” says Virgile Rouyer, Ascend’s regional sales manager for India, noting that Ascend has added capacity along its value chain consistently. Since 2015, production has increased by 10 to 30 percent, depending on product. Rouyer points out that Ascend’s strategy of selling nylon 6,6 globally into almost every end-use market has given it an unparalleled understanding of the entire value chain.

“Our nylon 6,6 is the material of choice across a broad spectrum of applications; from everyday essentials, like cooking utensils, to cutting edge technology, like electric vehicles. Our strategic partnership with Barnet India has made nylon 6,6 available throughout the subcontinent,” continues Rouyer. “Our capacity expansions and distributor relationships enable us to meet market demand with highly cost-effective products and solutions.”

Ascend is co-exhibiting with Barnet India at booth H2E16 at Plastindia 2018 in Gandhinagar – Ahmedabad from Feb. 7 to 12. Barnet India is the primary distributor of Ascend products in India.
