Successful commissioning of polyamide 6 plant at Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corporation
By Viktor Janzi, Senior Process Engineering, Polyamide Technology, Uhde Inventa-Fischer
The polyamide 6 produced at the plant is highly homogenous, stands out for its excellent heat stability and UV resistance, and meets the highest quality standards. The material is thus perfectly suited for high-speedspinning.
Uhde Inventa-Fischer's scope of supplies included the know-how licence, the formulae for the highperformance additives, the basic engineering, supervision of the detail engineering, the supply of all relevant equipment, supervision of the erection and the commissioning management. In addition, the operating personnel of Formosa Chemicals & Fibre Corporation were trained to operate the plant by experienced Uhde Inventa-Fischer specialists.
