Dow innovation is essential to products we use each day. When we work or play on computers, paint a wall or piece of furniture in our homes, polish our floors, and caulk our bathrooms. Dow in the Delaware Valley has a crucial role to play in the products that help us do these things.
Chemical mechanical polishing (CMP) products are developed and manufactured in the Delaware Valley for the fabrication of almost every type of electronic chip made today.
CMP is the process used to create the flawless surfaces required to make faster and more powerful integrated circuits and electronic substrates semiconductors.
Our products include polishing pads, pad conditioners, slurries, reactive chemical solutions, carrier films and template assemblies.
Building and Construction Industries
Dow is committed to the building and construction industry, and in recent years has invested in the Delaware Valley to produce Polyiso foam products including TUFF-R™, SUPER TUFF-R, THERMAX™, and THERMAX™ (ci).
Polyiso foam is an insulation foam best known for its excellent R-value, cost per R-value and flammability ratings. With more than 30 years of proven performance, THERMAX™ (ci) features a distinct free-rise technology for better product consistency, durability and fire performance than generic alternatives.
Consumer and Industrial Sector
Over the years, we've invented the acrylic technology behind high-quality acrylic latex paints; PVC impact modifiers; water purification products; polymers that make your laundry detergents and cosmetic products, including shampoos, lotions, and conditioners work better.
The Paint Quality Institute, also located in the Delaware Valley, maintains a paint exposure station which helps our customers develop high-quality paints that are easy to apply, stand up in harsh weather conditions and are better for the environment. The exposure panes give us and our customers an accurate picture of how coatings behave on different surfaces under various weather conditions.
