Solutions for Industrial Asset Protection

Dow offers a wide range of technology that enables tailored performance for industrial finishes to help maintain and protect infrastructure for years to come.

Protection and performance that lasts

The protection and maintenance of industrial and commercial structures often relies on high-performing paints and coatings, and raw materials from Dow can help you meet your target performance. We offer several technologies that enable primer, topcoat, and direct-to-metal formulations for light-to-aggressive conditions, including waterborne, solventborne, and high solids resins and additives. Whether formulating 1K or 2K systems, we can help combat damaging environmental effects on infrastructure. 

Acrylic resins from Dow facilitate the formulation of 1K and 2K industrial coatings for use in a variety of applications including industrial maintenance and commercial architectural finishes for steel and concrete, protective coatings for transportation applications like railcars and shipping containers, institutional coatings, and DIY metal finishes. Available in waterborne and solventborne offerings, Dow’s Acrylic Technology provides high performance for both field and factory applications.

Low VOC capability

Dow’s Waterborne Acrylic Resins facilitate reduced volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions compared to solventborne technology. With a range of minimum film formation temperature offerings, formulators can achieve VOC levels less than 25 g/L. 

Corrosion resistance

Industrial coatings must provide adequate corrosion resistance for the target asset to withstand the elements, and Dow’s Acrylic Resins can assist with achieving high performance corrosion resistance for 1K and 2K primers, topcoats, and direct-to-metal finishes. 

Fast dry and return to service

When application timing is critical, Dow’s Acrylic Technology can assist with improved dry time versus other chemistries utilized in the industry. 

Excellent gloss and durability

Coating appearance is just as important as the protection it provides. Dow offers resins for formulations ranging from high gloss topcoats to low gloss primers, and with the AVANSE™ Waterborne Acrylic Technology, coatings can achieve improved gloss retention versus standard acrylic options. 

Silicone-based materials in architectural and industrial markets continues to be viewed as premium technology for high-performing coatings. Silicone resins and resin intermediates are used in heat resistant paint and industrial marine and protective coatings, coil coatings, and hybrid resin systems for premium topcoat finishes.

Paint and coating formulations incorporating Dow silicone resins and resin intermediates exhibit improved resistance to temperature, moisture, corrosion, electrical discharge, weathering and UV radiation.

High temperature resistance

DOWSIL™ Silicone Resins offer high temperature resistance for demanding isothermal and temperature cycling coating performance requirements. 

Weather resistance

DOWSIL™ Silicone Resins can improve UV, water, and corrosion resistance in protective coatings, and Dow’s silicone resin portfolio contains inorganic (silylalkoxy and silanol) and organic-reactive (amine) solutions, offered in a variety of delivery forms. 

Room temperature cure
