Kumho Polychem finishes second EPDM plant in Yeosu

Kumho Polychem, a subsidiary under Kumho Petrochemical, has completed construction of its second plant in Yeosu, South Jeolla for producing ethylene propylene diene Monomer (EPDM).

The latest plant is built on 66,000 square meters (16.3 acres) of land is 30 percent larger than the existing plant. It spent about a year to complete the construction.

With the new plant, the company can produce 160,000 tons of EPDM a year and will become the third-largest producer in the world behind Germany’s Lanxess and the United States’ Exxon Mobil.

EPDM is used for making car bumpers and washer tubes or cables that require high tolerance against detergent or saltwater.
