Stadium Upgrades

Dow solutions are providing fans with a superior viewing experience as well as providing athletes with the highest quality facilities for competition as a result of Dow’s field-of-play technologies.

From the irrigation of the field to the VIP area of the stands, Dow technologies were applied in the restoration of Rio’s (and Brazil’s) most iconic venue – Maracanã stadium. The venue will host Opening and Closing ceremonies, track & field events, and soccer matches. Dow Plastics are utilized in the pipes from the draining and irrigation system under the natural grass pitch to ensure optimal conditions for the athletes and multi-layer flooring solutions containing Dow epoxy and polyurethane offer the mechanical properties to withstand heavy foot traffic on the walkway to the stands.

During Sochi 2014, SPECFLEX™ Polyurethane Systems were used to produce the seats for VIP guests at the Bolshoy Ice Dome, contributing to aesthetics, comfort and durability.
