Bluestar Silicones To Debut, Launch Product At IFAI Expo 2007

Bluestar Silicones will make its debut at IFAI Expo 2007 next month in Las Vegas. The company was created earlier this year through the acquisition of Rhodia Silicones by China National BlueStar Corp. Its activities include the production of elastomeric silicones for safety restraint systems in automobiles; as well as silicones for use in medical textiles, water repellency, architectural coatings and fire protection.

Based in France and led by Olivier de Clermont-Tonnerre, the new company has a 400,000-ton production capacity for silicone core intermediates, two upstream production sites in France and China, numerous downstream production sites around the world and centers of excellence in France and Asia.

Bluestar Silicones will unveil its Rhodorsil® TCS 7001 water repellent for man-made fabrics at IFAI Expo 2007. The repellent provides a high level of wash resistance as well as excellent barrier protection against fire, heat, radiation, moisture, ageing and mechanical stress, according to the company.
