IQOXE Polymer Emulsions

Our production plant located in Tarragona (Spain) was originally built in 1976 by the German chemical company Hoechst. After its split, in 1997 Clariant acquired ownership of the production centre and after 6 years managing the business, in 2003, Celanese took over the polymer emulsion unit. In December 2015, IQOXE acquired the production centre, together with a technology licensing agreement for the production of Acrylic dispersions, acryl-styrene co-polymers, polyvinyl acetate homo-polymers and Vinyl-Ester.
