Specialty chemicals player Evonik recently held an event to mark the start of a project at its manufacturing facility in Taiwan to increase production of Acematt brand precipitated matting agents, the company announced Tuesday. The additional capacity is slated to come online in the second half of 2023, aiding Evonik in serving rising demand for the products in the Asian market.

“The capacity expansion of our leading matting agents in Taiwan further emphasizes our commitment to the growing markets in Asia and to all our regional and multi-national customers,” Maximilian Morin, Head of Industrial & Transportation Coatings at Evonik Coating Additives, said in a release. “We are continuously expanding our position as a truly global partner for our coatings customers by offering the same high-quality products from manufacturing locations in multiple regions. In times of rising logistical challenges, such an investment will also directly benefit our partners and customers across the globe by further improving our supply situation worldwide.”

Formulators use Acematt matting agents to develop products with various matting levels, including semi-gloss and ultra-deep matt. The matting agents are also used in a number of industrial and transportation applications, like can and coal coatings and plastics.
