Airport paving is part of essential infrastructure anywhere. In Magadan, Russia, reconstruction of a landing strip, ramp, taxiways and a drainage system was undertaken using Elvaloy® RET to allow the local airport to receive heavier aircraft (up to 500 tons).
Commercial applications and concepts from around the world for packaging using Dow Surlyn® 3D confirm the multitude of design options available with the innovative overmolding technology from Dow. In Japan, Yoshida Industries has started mass production of two containers for skincare products which benefit from a protective outerlayer of Surlyn® that simultaneously heightens their visual appeal. Meanwhile the European subsidiary of the Tae Jin Corporation, Unifyer, has invested in tooling and machinery to create uniquely new shapes for the packaging of mascara and lipgloss tubes, based on Surlyn® 3D, that help create a luxurious impression. Finally, in Italy, glass manufacturer Luigi Bormioli is developing new concepts for the overmolding of glass with Surlyn®, with the potential for new decoration techniques, visual effects and heightened product safety.
Because of its easy handling, spreading and compaction, bitumen modified using Elvaloy® RET can help speed road construction, and get traffic back on the new surface with less delay and shorter disruption.
