Dow Corning

By becoming an integrated part of the Dow Chemical company on June 1st 2016, two sets of technology and expertise were brought together, opening a world of new opportunities. Combining Dow Corning’s silicones technology with Dow’s industry-leading science and engineering in acrylic and other technologies, brings new differentiated solutions faster. This means a wider breadth of differentiated solutions, improved regional and global service, and more innovation. Dow Corning provides coatings solutions globally with its range of silicone resins and additives aligned with customer needs for innovation, compliance and cost effectiveness, targeting a broad variety of coatings industries like Architectural Coatings, Industrial Coatings, Wood Coatings, Protective Coatings, High Temperature Coatings and Inks. Cost effective enhancements of product properties include abrasion resistance, slip, levelling, wetting, foam control, water repellency, temperature resistance, weathering and UV resistance. Recent findings have led to new innovative solutions for improved anti blocking, snail trail resistance and thermal insulation.
During ECS 2017 we’ll be showcasing how to reach the next levels in mechanical resistance of Architectural Coatings, both in wall paint and wood coatings. Efficient and versatile additives like Dow Corning® 52 Additive improve abrasion, scratch and blocking resistance significantly. Of specific interest for wall paint is the improvement of mar resistance in dark colors.
Particularly for Protective Coatings we recently launched Dow Corning® 2405 Resin. Come visit us and learn how this silicone resin can contribute to improved flexibility in High Temperature resistant coatings. This innovative product is in addition room temperature curing.
