Sadara Chemical Company (Sadara), the largest chemical complex ever built in a single phase, has successfully started up the Kingdom’s first Polyols plant. This manufacturing facility produces specialty chemicals that go into the production of polyurethanes and specialty foams.

The polyols plant is one of the last of Sadara’s 26 chemical facilities to start up. It is also one of Sadara’s 14 facilities that will produce specialty chemicals never before produced in Saudi Arabia.

Commenting on the announcement, Sadara CEO Ziad Al-Labban highlighted the added value that Sadara brings to the Kingdom, saying, “Sadara has long been identified as a Game Changing player in the petrochemical arena in the Kingdom and the region. The Polyols facility will enable manufacturers in Saudi Arabia to obtain the specialty chemicals needed for a broad spectrum of applications. This will help create new industries domestically as well as generate enormous job opportunities for the Kingdom’s young professionals.”

Sadara has two Polyol trains which use propylene oxide and ethylene oxide to produce multiple grades of polyether polyols. The products are used in a broad range of industrial applications, including the production of specialty foams for trim and seating applications, TDI molding and formulating systems, noise/vibration/harshness molding, flexible molding, high-resiliency molded foams and more.
