The Dow Oxygenated Solvents business announced an expansion plan to increase capacity of butyl glycol ethers at its Seadrift, Texas facility. This plan is part of a two-phase debottleneck project that will increase capacity of butyl Cellosolve solvent and butyl Carbitol solvent by 15 percent. Phase 1 will be completed later this month; followed by Phase 2, which will be finished during a planned turnaround this fall. Dow is the world’s largest supplier of butyl glycol ethers. These key raw materials are used primarily in the production of coatings, household and industrial cleaners, brake fluids, inks and oil and gas.
