Dow expansion to support growing North American demand for end-use PU products & PU systems formulations

12-Sep-07
To support growing demand for end-use polyurethanes products and polyurethane systems formulations in North America, Dow has planned expansion. Dow Polyurethanes, a business group of The Dow Chemical Company, plans expansion of the specialty mix polyols capability at its manufacturing facility in Freeport, Texas to the tune of 59000 tpa. The expanded capacity is scheduled to come on stream in early 2009. Polyols consumption in North America is estimated at 2.9 billion pounds, with an annual growth rate comparable to GDP, as per one estimate. Growth is driven primarily by demand in automotive, coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE), specialty foams for the furniture and bedding industries as well as appliance applications.
