Dow Polyurethanes to Add Polyether Polyols Facility at Thailand Site

Dow Polyurethanes, a business of The Dow Chemical Co., recently announced it will add a polyether polyols facility at the company’s Map Ta Phut, Thailand, site to reportedly further address regional customer needs. The facility’s 165 kilotons per year of capacity is intended to reduce logistical costs and transportation risks by minimizing the amount of transportation across different assets in the region. Using state-of-the-art DMC catalyst technology, the facility will reportedly deliver a local, reliable supply of polyether polyols for flex slab applications that present a variety of opportunities, and especially address customer demand in coatings, adhesives and sealants, and elastomer applications.

“This expansion is directly aligned to our long-term strategy for Dow’s Thailand Growth Project,” said Mark Bassett, Global Business director. “We are committed to listening and responding to market dynamics with technologies that benefit our customers and contribute to their growth plans.”
