COLUMBUS, Ohio - (August 3, 2022) – Hexion will host a webinar featuring the latest developments with its ArmorBuilt™ Fire Protection product on Wednesday, August 10th, at 11 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. The webinar will provide the latest information needed to provide electrical grid stability in the face of natural or man-made disaster and feature Hexion’s fire safety experts Scott McIntyre and Mark Clark.
Merging fire science and smart, fire-resistant materials, the Hexion ArmorBuilt™ Wildfire Shield is designed to secure wood utility poles against damaging effects during a wildfire. The state-of-the-art covering promotes a renewably sourced power infrastructure while substantially minimizing the cost of repair. And with its insulating and self-healing properties, ArmorBuilt wrap makes a safe and reliable burn-prevention ally for line workers in the field — all backed by Hexion’s century of innovation and supply-chain reliability.
Earlier this year, Hexion announced that it was strategically strengthening its manufacturing footprint in support of its ArmorBuilt™ Fire Protection product through an expansion of its Missoula, Montana site. To meet the continued strong demand, Hexion previously announced two capacity expansions at its Portland, Oregon manufacturing site in 2021. The Missoula site expansion will enable Hexion to significantly increase its capacity to serve customers more easily in the Western United States and beyond, which are areas prone to wildfires. The new capacity is expected to come online in the fourth quarter of 2022.
