The Sadara chemical complex is expected to be a highly corrosive environment with respect to construction materials. The primary technical and commercial variables contributing to the application include:
- Highly corrosive chemicals associated with chlorine and vinyls manufacturing
- Site proximity to one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, the Arabian Gulf
- Very high local temperatures, which increases the corrosiveness of the environment’s chemicals and salty air
- Commercially, Sadara purchasing management desired domestically manufactured content and historically proven material technologies utilized by ARAMCO or Dow
