Hexion Intends to Expand Portland, Oregon, Site

March 15 (2021

As part of its broader investment plan to drive innovation and growth in its specialty product lines, Hexion Inc. intends to expand its Portland, Oregon, manufacturing site. The Company is beginning the permitting stages of a second automated manufacturing line to support its recently-launched ArmorBuilt fire resistant wrap, a new product which greatly improves fire protection when applied to a substrate, such as wood utility poles. The first automated production line will come online at the end of the first quarter of 2021 and the second automated line is expected to start up around year-end 2021.

ArmorBuilt wrap is a proprietary wrap from Hexion that can be applied to either new or existing wood utility poles. Hexion has been providing high-performing adhesives for decades and has leveraged its expertise to develop a fire-retardant coating for more sustainable wooden utility poles that greatly improves their fire resistance. ArmorBuilt wrap has passed an industry approved wildfire simulation burn test for fire resistance.
