TORONTO (ICIS)--Dow Chemical has broken ground on an acrylic and styrene-acrylic polymers plant in Dong Nai province in southern Vietnam, the US-based chemicals major said on Tuesday.

The plant, expected to start production in September 2011, would help Dow meet growing demand from Vietnam-based paint and coatings manufacturers, it said.

More than 90% of the plant’s capacity would be sold to Vietnam-based customers, the majority of which were multi-national companies, said Yoke Loon Lim, general manager for Southeast Asia with the company’s Dow Advanced Materials unit.

Dow did not disclose capacity or investment details.
