In the recent years Polycarbonate has undergone a very fast change from a former engineering to a mass polymer. Despite the loss of volume markets like optical memory discs and food applications the overall demand for Polycarbonate is continuously growing.
China – originally a pure import market for PC – has new, own capacities by the worldwide well known industry leaders. On top of such international investments there are at least 7 Chinese industry groups who already have own, local capacities or will launch new capacities in the near future.
China increasingly is becoming an important potential supplier for polycarbonate. This fits to our philosophy to offer technical and qualitywise high value materials at competitive prices to Europe.
Already since the late 2019 DREYPLAS and Chinese LUXI ( http://en.luxichemical.com/ ) entered into a sales agreement for Europe’s German speaking countries. Luxi started back in 2015 and has since the first expansion in 2018 already a capacity of 200,000MT PC resin.
Basically LUXI produces MFR from 3 to 20. All grades will be also available with UV protection.
To be costwise for the customers most competitive DREYPLAS is concentrating in the first phase on few grades like MFR 9 and 15, MFR 9 also with UV. As soon as the supply prooved to be routine business also other MFR shall be made available step by step.
Existing customers are served from local stock in Germany. New customers may have a lead time of up to 8weeks for the first delivery. After that stocks can be increased to ensure a lead time of few working days.
DREYPLAS is represented in China directly with a reliable group partner. By that we are able to locally control the cargo logistics as well as the quality and make sure that our standards are kept.
