Dow Sponsors 2016 National Lubricating Grease Institute Annual Meeting

Dow Performance Lubricants Showcases Revolutionary Friction Modifiers

Midland, MI - June 07, 2016

The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) will return as a Gold Sponsor for the 2016 NLGI Annual Meeting June 11-14 in Hot Springs, VA, where industry leaders from around the country will gather to explore emerging lubrication technology. Dow will enable collaboration by sponsoring “Meeting Central” at the conference, a central space for dialogue and innovation.

Dow sales representatives and technical experts will attend to share successes in Oil Soluble Polyalkylene Glycol (OSP) technology, which enables optimal friction modification among numerous other properties in greases and oils around the industry. These revolutionary additives have enabled outstanding performance in formulations that meet some of the toughest challenges in lubrication, including in grease used by Richard Childress Racing team vehicles under the punishing conditions of a NASCAR race.

“We focus on enabling the success of lubricant formulators, which requires listening to their most pressing challenges and reaching across our wide portfolio of technologies and extensive capabilities to help them meet their customer’s demands,” said Flavio Kliger, global market portfolio director for Dow Performance Lubricants. “Participation in conferences like this demonstrates our commitment to collaboration, which has opened up new doors with formulators and allowed us to put our technology to work for them.”
