Polymers Making Factory

Posted on November 19, 2013 by team


There is a factory in Voronezh, Russia, that has recently started making modern polymer materials (butadiene-styrene thermoplastic elastomers). Such polymers are used for road construction, roofing materials, glue making, various types of plastic, in footwear industry. In the former Soviet countries it’s the only factory making such products. We are not going to describe complicated chemical processes, we will simply have a short excursion to the factory.

The unit of receipt and making of a catalyst agent – butyl lithium.

The resulted active styrene polymer is mixed with butadiene to make a new active polymer. It’s an intermediate product that can be used for making TEP (thermoelastoplast) with necessary properties.

On the picture above are reactors and all the equipment required for polymerization.
