Veliky Novgorod-based Acron is completing upgrade of formalin and urea resins shop.
Since 2015, Acron has been upgrading the amino resin reactor of the formalin and urea resins shop at its Veliky Novgorod facility. The upgrades have helped increase output of resins with various melamine content required to produce environmentally friendly and moisture-resistant wood boards.
In 2015, Acron’s formalin and urea resins shop produced 168,000 tonnes of formalin and 186,000 tonnes of resins, up 17% and 8% year-on-year respectively. Output of melamine-based resins increased 30%. In the same year, the 55% methanol-free-formalin unit reached its full capacity. IKEA Industry Novgorod is the key consumer of Acron’s resins.
Resins are finished commercial products produced from urea, in-house formalin and melamine. “Demand for our products, including melamine-based resins, continues to grow,” says Acron Executive Director Vladimir Gavrikov. “We are always improving the quality of our products, and our experts work to refine the synthesis formulae for existing brands and to develop new brands”.
