SILASTIC™ Moldable Optical Silicones

The plan to rebrand: Moldable Optical Silicones

High-quality moldable optical silicone elastomers from Dow are undergoing a brand name change in 2019.

Only the brand name has changed — from DOWSIL™ to SILASTIC™. There are no changes to the quality, chemistry, pricing, SKUs, material numbers or the ordering process.

What products are affected?

Old Name New Name Resources
DOWSIL™ MS-0002 Moldable Silicone SILASTIC™ MS-0002 Moldable Silicone
DOWSIL™ MS-1001 Moldable Silicone SILASTIC™ MS-1001 Moldable Silicone
DOWSIL™ MS-1002 Moldable Silicone SILASTIC™ MS-1002 Moldable Silicone
DOWSIL™ MS-1003 Moldable Silicone SILASTIC™ MS-1003 Moldable Silicone
DOWSIL™ MS-2002 Moldable Silicone White Reflector SILASTIC™ MS-2002 Moldable Silicone White Reflector
DOWSIL™ MS-4002 Moldable Silicone SILASTIC™ MS-4002 Moldable Silicone
DOWSIL™ MS-4007 Moldable Silicone SILASTIC™ MS-4007 Moldable Silicone

Even with a simple name change, we recognize there is much to consider, such as:

Why are these products changing names?

Our moldable optical silicones will be aligned with the SILASTIC™ Liquid Silicone Rubber (LSR) product family. As a result of this alignment, the current DOWSIL™ Moldable Optical Silicones will share the SILASTIC™ name. This change will build on 70+ years of SILASTIC™ brand equity, silicone elastomer compounding experience, and a global network of technical expertise.

What about the existing inventory and documentation?

Existing inventory will not be re-labeled with the product brand changes. Labels, safety data sheets and other documentation will be updated with the product brand changes over time as current inventories are exhausted. Renaming notices will be available to help with any mismatched documentation and labels.

Is updated technical content available?

There are many updated resources available directly from our product details pages linked in the table above. Additional useful resources can be found here:
