MIDLAND, Michigan: jueves, 10 de marzo de 2016

U.S. buildings account for 41 percent of all energy consumed in the U.S.,1 a number which can be reduced with the use of construction materials that are energy efficient, reduce carbon footprints and meet more stringent regulations. Dow InsulationScience delivers high performance polyurethane solutions to do just that, ultimately helping builders and contractors create better homes and for a better world.
