Dow Water & Process Solutions is expanding its production plant in Fombio, Italy to manufacture uniform particle size (UPS) copolymers used in the company’s ion exchange resins.

Dow Water & Process Solutions believes that producing UPS gel copolymers for the first time in Europe will yield increased quality and cost-savings for ion exchange resin production.

“Currently, we manufacture UPS gel copolymer in the US and ship to major markets in France, China, and Japan,” said Ian Barbour, general manager, Dow Water & Process Solutions. “Creating an advanced manufacturing presence for copolymers in Europe allows us to provide higher-quality product more quickly and at a reduced transportation cost.”
