Dow introduces V PLUS PERFORM™, implemented by ISOPAN through the LEAF Technology

Verona, Italy - January 17, 2017 -

Creating energy efficient buildings is becoming more and more critical. In addition, European regulations and national building codes as well as complex and challenging requirements increase the need for high-performance construction materials. To help building and construction companies address these challenges, Dow Polyurethanes and Isopan have worked together to be able to introduce today two new technologies: DOW V PLUS PERFORM™ Technology, which is fully integrated in the ISOPAN LEAF Technology. A first result of this combination is the enhanced Isopan sandwich panels range, available beginning summer 2017 in a high-end performing version, slim and lightweight.

For the first time ever, Dow and Isopan are now introducing these innovations at BAU 2017 in Munich (till 21 January). During the show, the two companies will be demonstrating how this future oriented solution opens up whole new possibilities for planning your buildings.

“Thinking about the requirements in the building and construction world, lighter, more energy efficient, easier to use and yet addressing rules and regulations are becoming more and more important”, says Alberto Mercati, Associate Marketing Director Energy Efficiency for Dow Polyurethanes. “These were the drivers we had in mind when we started working on V Plus Perform. We have been cooperating with Isopan, and are very happy that the V Plus Perform Technology now will be offered to the market through Isopan’s LEAF Technology”.

“Isopan is deeply committed towards the reduction of the building industry’s environmental footprint, and we ask our business partners to share our vision in order to give a boost to the shift to a green and circular economy model”, states Alessandro Cuomo, International Market and Brand Developer of the Italian Manni Group, which controls Isopan companies. “The cooperation with Dow was born on these premises and it is a solution that the entire value chain players can benefit from. It has resulted in our LEAF technology, which addresses multiple sustainability criteria like halogen free flame retardants while still achieving Euroclas B-S1,d0; great insulation properties, lightweight and a solid contribution towards satisfying LEED® V4 Credits, all in one Isopan sandwich panel, to add further value to your building”.
