MIDLAND, US/MAP TA PHUT, THAILAND: Dow Polyurethanes, a business of The Dow Chemical Company, will add a polyether polyols facility at the Company’s Map Ta Phut, Thailand site to further address regional customer needs. The facility’s 165 kilotonne per annum of capacity will reduce logistical costs and transportation risks by minimizing the amount of transportation across different assets in the region.

The facility will utilize DMC catalyst technology and deliver local, reliable supply of polyether polyols for flex slab applications that present a variety of unique opportunities, and especially address customer demand in coating, adhesive, sealant and elastomer applications.

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