SIBUR has launched production of styrene-butadiene thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) – cutting-edge polymer materials at its Voronezh-based facility. The production facility reached its full design capacity of 50 ktpa.

The process phase of start-up and commissioning operations at the new facility completed with a 72-hour trial run of all the equipment units attended by the licensor's representatives. Each separation line showed the nominal design capacity at the finished products stage.

In its report on the results of the integrated testing, the licensor expressed a high opinion of the quality of construction and installation, general readiness of the TPE-50 facility to commence operations and its full compliance with the technology transferred under the licence.

The licensor concludes that "the operating personnel is well-qualified, and the equipment well-prepared ensuring output of high-quality products in the amounts as specified in the framework project."

"The new facility proceeds to operate in the production and maintenance mode," says Viktor Kuklinov, CEO of Voronezhsintezkauchuk. "From now on, the consumers will receive extra volumes of cutting-edge polymer materials for the road building industry and roof coatings."

SIBUR commenced the start-up and commissioning operations at the new facility on 23 May 2013, with the event attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
