WEB EXCLUSIVE: Newly formed Styron LLC (formerly part of Dow Chemical) will replace its Calibre 1080 DVD polycarbonate for optical media with an improved grade, Calibre 1060 DVD. (The changeover has already been made in Europe.) The new version is said to match the high optical quality and flow (58 MFR) of the earlier grade but adds greater ductility and toughness to provide better protection from breakage.
Meanwhile, Styron has selected the Philadelphia area for its global headquarters. Several locations are being considered. The company’s North America Operations Center will remain in Midland, Mich., where Styron has leased 8400 sq ft of office space downtown.
