Karoon Petchem Plant Unveils New Items

TEHRAN (Shana) -- Karoon Petrochemical Company has unveiled two new and widely-used items with the aim of diversifying its production portfolio, while meeting the needs of domestic downstream industries.

Alireza Sedighizadeh, the CEO of Karoon Petrochemical Company, said on Saturday, November 15, at the unveiling ceremony of the two new products that his complex was the first producer of isocyanates, including TDI and MDI in the Middle East and West Asia.

He said two new grades, MTDA and KMT-10, were introduced by the company in order to diversify its product portfolio, meet the needs of downstream industries, complete the value chain and increase resilience in the face of sanctions.

The official continued: “The commercial supply of the new grades, in addition to rendering the country self-sufficient in production of the items, meets the needs of petrochemical downstream industries in the country.

The CEO of Karoon Petrochemical Company, noting that the firm had an annual production capacity of 2,000 tons of KMT-10 and that the most important application of this product is in the production of cold foam molds with high flexibility for use in the automotive and office and home furniture industries, added: “MTDA production capacity in this company is 1,000 tons to meet the needs of intermediate and downstream manufacturers of paint, resin and polyurethane industries.”

Sedighizadeh stated that the use of KMT-10 in furniture production prevents the loss of flexibility of car seats and furniture over time, adding production of car seats with this product does not require special furnaces and equipment.

He also said that MTDA is primarily used for production of paint and the item produced by Karoon Petrochemical Plant has managed to spark interest among Iranian consumers and producers of paint.
