Written by  OE Staff Thursday, 27 April 2017 15:26

Materia, a developer and manufacturer of catalysts and advanced polymers, is supporting growth in its Proxima thermoset resins by expanding its manufacturing capacity fivefold in Huntsville, Texas. The expanded facility will complement Materia’s existing prototyping and polymer testing facility in Pasadena, Calif.

Materia’s Proxima resins are designed to provide reliable, practical and economical solutions for technology challenges in subsea thermal insulation, subsea buoyancy and downhole tools. Proxima resins are processed into durable polymer products that are used in extreme environments.

“Materia’s enhanced investment in our Proxima products further supports our ability to provide high quality customer service to engineers who are increasingly looking for alternative materials that reliably save time and money,” said Nitin Apte, president and CEO, Materia.
