At the opening of the China Glass exhibition, Solutia Inc., a company involved in the production and sale of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayers, today announced it has begun the design and engineering of a new Saflex PVB interlayer plant in China.

Upon the successful completion of the design and engineering phase, the company would begin the construction phase, targeting a mid-2007 startup.The plant is being designed to meet the growing demands of the Chinese automotive market by manufacturing PVB interlayers for use in windscreens.

"The China plant is a critical component of the global growth strategy for Solutia's Laminated Glazing Interlayers (LGI) business," said Mitch Pulwer, General Manager, LGI, Solutia Inc. "We are dedicated to meeting the growing needs of our customers worldwide, and to building capacity in line with market demand. This announcement reflects our commitment to providing customers in China with an on-the-ground source of the world's premier PVB interlayers. We will continue to invest in all world areas as both technology and capacity needs arise."

The new Solutia plant is being designed for location in an industrial community such as the greater Shanghai area.

When laminated between layers of glass, PVB interlayers enhance the performance characteristics of glass, providing benefits such as security, solar protection, sound attenuation, safety and style.
