Dow Chemical to build a new polymer facility in Saudi
2017/06/20

June 19, 2017
The first agreement is to construct a new waterborne polymer facility, valued at more than $100 million, to produce coatings emulsion polymers plus polyacrylate dispersant polymers for water treatment and consumer applications.

The firm also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a feasibility study related to a proposed investment in Dow’s Performance Chemicals franchise.

Located in the PlasChem Park in Jubail, the coatings facility will service the needs of the Saudi Arabian market with a range of acrylic-based polymers for industrial and architectural coatings and water-treatment and detergent applications.

Production is tentatively being planned by 2022, though actual timing will be determined by potential synergies with other construction projects, the report added.
