Innovating for a smoother, safer ride
Steering and braking. Two standard vehicle systems, but we know there’s more than meets the eye. Through rigorous R&D and cross-team collaboration, Dow develops technologies for steering and brake systems that enable higher levels of response, precision, accuracy and smoothness for safer vehicle operation.
Check out our resources below to discover how the power of materials science can help you respond to and get ahead of the market.
Solvent- based solutions optimize brake fluid for longevity and strength due to superior surface tension and high boiling points. No matter the temperature, our technology will help keep hydraulic brake components functioning safely and efficiently.

How can you be confident in your brakes, from mile 1 to 300,000? Engineered silicone elastomers help ensure gaskets, seals, boots, bellows and dust covers do what they’re supposed to by providing good mechanical properties, tear strength and weatherability. We also provide an industry leading array of materials for chassis and brake related electronic controllers and sensors.
"Drive-by-wire" systems like EPS are dominating next-gen vehicles. EPS offers new levels of safety, energy efficiency and fuel economy, simplified maintenance, and a finely-tuned system that responds uniquely to the driving conditions. We can help keep your EPS systems functioning at their best by protecting key components using silicone adhesives, conformal coatings and more.
The smarter and more connected our vehicles get, the more protection they require - from heat, water and other damage. We're here to help you solve for those challenges at the design phase with silicone solutions that keep circuits reliable in all conditions.
