DuPont builds film plant for laminated glass

DuPont group is constructing a new plant for the production of films for laminated glass in the Moravian town of Holesov in the Czech Republic.

The global chemicals and plastics group, through its local subsidiary Retrim-CZ, is investing around €9.2m in the new facility which initially will employ 15.

It is scheduled to be launched in October this year. DuPont, with a national base in the Czech capital Prague, acquired the Czech safety glass interlayer company Retrim, a specialist in recycling PVB (polyvinyl butyral resin) materials, based in Zlin in 2004.

Its technology allows the re-use of the material in the manufacture of automotive and architectural laminated glass.

DuPont was already producing safety glass interlayer materials at other plants in South Korea, the US and Germany. The Czech acquisition was also designed to boost DuPont’s presence in central and Eastern Europe.

In 2009, the US group, which employs a total of 111 people in the Czech Republic, opened a structural demonstration centre in Prague.
