CFCM Nouryon 400

Nouryon plans to expand production capacity at its Levasil colloidal silica manufacturing facility in Green Bay, Wisconsin, to meet increasing demand from the Construction and Packaging end markets. The facility expansion is planned to be finalized in the second half of 2022.

"The capacity expansion at our manufacturing facility in Green Bay is driven by growing demand for Levasil colloidal silica products in North America," said Patrick Wilhelm, Vice President of Inorganic Specialties at Nouryon. "We are pleased to support our customers' growth, which is fueled by large governmental infrastructure projects as well as increasing demand in packaging materials driven by e-commerce."

Nouryon's Levasil colloidal silica products are versatile and support several end markets. A product of two natural ingredients – sand and water – Levasil colloidal silica enhances and improves key functionalities and sustainability profiles of other products and manufacturing processes. In construction applications, Levasil products provide durability to structures such as bridges and buildings. Levasil products are also used to create anti-slip surfaces in packaging applications – making stacking and handling of finished products more accessible and more efficient. 

"By investing in our global network of Levasil colloidal silica manufacturing facilities, we are further strengthening our manufacturing footprint to grow with our sustainable solutions and enhancing our ability to supply our construction and packaging customers in the U.S. and around the world," said Johan Landfors, Executive Vice President and President Technology Solutions and Europe at Nouryon.

New Bacharach Sling Psychrometer


CFCM slingpsychrometer 400Paul N. Gardner USA, global distributors, producers, and designers of quality physical and inspection instruments for the paint, coatings, and related industries, has introduced a new offering: The compact, portable Sling Psychrometer.

As an easy way to measure relative humidity levels quickly, this uniquely compact Bacharach Sling Psychrometer accurately determines per cent relative humidity without the necessity of consulting complex tables. There is no need to wet the wick each time a reading is taken, and it contains a slide rule calculator which correlates wet and dry bulb thermometer indications for direct reading of relative humidity. When not in use, the thermometer case telescopes into the handle for protection.

The Sling Psychrometer consists of two thermometers that are turned by vigorously swinging the handle and exposing the thermometers to rapid air movement. These two thermometers are called dry bulb and wet bulb. The bulb of one thermometer is placed in direct contact with the room air to measure dry-bulb air temperature. The bulb of the other thermometer is covered with a silk or muslin sleeve that is kept moist to record the wet bulb temperature. Evaporation cools the wet bulb more than the dry bulb, and the humidity is obtained as a function of change in temperature. The atmospheric humidity is determined by calculations, steam tables, or using a psychrometric chart. Gardco.com
