Sabic affiliate, Ibn Sina, a 50-50 joint venture with CTE, has started up its polyacetal facility in Jubail. The facility is the first plant in Middle East and Africa.

Jubail/Saudi Arabia — Polyacetal is a semi-crystalline thermoplastic material that has the potential to replace metal in many applications due to its high strength and ease of machining. It has several automotive applications such as in safety-belt systems and window lift mechanisms. In building and construction, its applications include bathroom parts, such as showerheads and pipe couplings.

Abdulrahman Al-Fageeh, Sabic Executive Vice President, Petrochemicals, described the start-up as an important step in the company's growth strategy in the specialty plastics market.

The polyacetal project was launched in 2010 when Sabic concluded an agreement with the Celanese Corporation for the construction of a 50,000 ton polyacetal production facility at Ibn Sina.
