Dow Introduces New VORASURF™ Polyurethane Additives

Midland, MI - September 22, 2017 -

As part of DowDuPont Materials Science Division’s (NYSE: DWDP), ongoing commitment to provide customers with greater access to expertise and products, more buying options and reliability, the technologies of Dow Corning Polyurethane Additives (PUA) will be sold by Dow under the VORASURF™ Polyurethane Additives brand name.

VORASURF™ Polyurethane Additives will address consumer comfort and energy efficiency markets to help meet growing demand for high-performance materials in bedding, footwear and spray foam.

“We are selling over 100 former Dow Corning PUA products into the polyurethanes industry, expanding our already extensive toolbox of proven silicone surfactants for high-performance polyurethane foam,” said Richard James, global segment leader for polyurethane additives. “In addition to expanding our portfolio, we are continuing to innovate with advanced products like low volatile organic compounds automotive surfactants and new hydrofluoroolefin compatible products.”

The transition to the VORASURF™ brand name will begin in November 2017 and will be fully transitioned by the end of 2018. All Dow Corning PUA products will still be offered, but to help ensure a smooth transition, updated product names will feature Dow Corning’s “DC” and retain the original product grade numbers (i.e. DC 193, DC 2525, DC 5950, etc.) Dow will officially launch the product name change and the Dow Corning surfactants portfolio at the annual Center for Polyurethanes Technical Conference (CPI) taking place October 2-4 in New Orleans, LA.
