Advancing circularity across automotive applications
The demand for greater automotive sustainability is growing and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and their customers are looking to accelerate solutions that can support vehicle lifecycle management.
Dow’s innovative polyurethane solutions use a mass-balance approach with recycled feedstocks to create circular polyurethane-based products for a wide array of automotive applications.
Produce, use, and retire sustainably
The basis for mobility innovation begins at the design phase and choosing the right raw materials is key to addressing automotive sustainability challenges.
Our polyurethane innovations are designed to help customers reach their goals as well as meet their market and regulatory demands for more circular products. Let’s drive the future of automotive sustainability forward.
Explore SPECFLEX™ C benefits:
By using circular feedstocks, Dow provides a range of solutions for products with 50-60% recycled content and an improved lifecycle analysis profile compared to fossil-based fuel.
SPECFLEX™ C Series reduces our dependence on fossil fuels through circular mobility solutions without any loss in quality or performance.
Our SPECFLEX™ C Series uses a circular feedstock sourced from recycled raw materials of the mobility sector to enable a wide range of flexible foam solutions for comfort and acoustic purposes in interior, exterior, as well as powertrain solutions in consumer and transportation applications.
As we continue to close the loop in our production process with circular feedstocks which replace the need for virgin fossil-fuel based feedstocks, SPECFLEX™ C products reduce our carbon footprint (Carbon calculations follow ISO 14044*) and promote automotive sustainability throughout vehicle lifecycles.
