DuPont has announced the opening and start up of a Teflon production plant in China.
The plant makes polytetrafluoroethylene fine-powder and dispersion for global customers. It's said to be part of the company's long-term plan to establish a broader manufacturing base in China.
Teflon is used in hundreds of industrial applications to produce thousands of consumer products.
According to TradingMarkets.com, "the Changshu plant is the fourth DuPont facility that has installed commercial production units using DuPont Echelon technology". The others are in the Netherlands, Japan, and at DuPont Washington Works near Parkersburg.
This month DuPont Washington Works is celebrating 60 years of manufacturing in the Mid Ohio Valley.
