SIBUR and Tosol-Sintez have signed an agreement on the sale of coolants and brake fluids facilities located on the former Kaprolaktam plant site in Dzerzhinsk, SIBUR informed.
The projected annual capacity of the facilities is 46,000 tonnes of coolants and 22,800 tonnes of brake fluids.
SIBUR has worked with Tosol-Sintez in the technical fluids segment since 2001, in particular, by selling it monoethylene glycol, which is used in the production of coolants and brake fluids. System fluids are the core products marketed by Tosol-Sintez.
As agreed between SIBUR and the new owner, after their shutdown the staff will be transferred to Tosol-Sintez, the latter becoming a resident of the Oka-Polymer industrial park as a system fluid production facility.
Previously, Kaprolaktam's ethylene chlorohydrin units were sold to another strategic investor – Kazan Synthetic Rubber Plant. SIBUR is transferring the assets to their new owners as part of the phased process of the Kaprolaktam chlorine production shutdown and conversion of the site into an industrial park.
Tosol-Sintez is a leader in the domestic market of internal combustion engine coolants (antifreezes) and other system fluids. The company's dealer chain covers several regions of Russia and foreign countries.
