In a move to tap into India and greater Asia’s growing construction and greenhouse industries, Sabic Innovative Plastics has started up a line making multiwall polycarbonate sheet at its plant in Vadodara, India.

The new line is designed to meet rising consumer demand in the region for Lexan Thermoclear-brand multiwall PC sheet for use in construction roofing, glazing, and cladding applications, Sabic said in a press release. The Pittsfield, Mass.-based company made the announcement during the Roof India 2012 trade show in Chennai, India

“The expanded Vadodara facility features world-class quality assurance processes, including a unique UV-protective coating system as well as cap layer measurement and color measurement systems,” the company said. “The plant is strategically located next to SABIC’s specialty and performance plastics compounding lines to drive rapid application development and custom color options.”
