Cleaners and Primers

Durability, weatherability and performance

Seeking silicone solutions that protect buildings from the elements? Looking to expand your range of electronic device design options and achieve improved adhesion? Durable materials with proven performance start with high-quality cleaners and primers from Dow. The right products, combined with our technical expertise and advice, can enable ideal performance across a variety of electronics, advanced assembly, and building and construction applications.

Cleaners that reduce dirt pick-up and minimize staining. Primers that adhere more easily at a lower temperature to a wider variety of substrate materials. Our broad portfolio of silicone cleaners and primers provides many benefits, including:

  • Enhanced performance and durability
  • Increased manufacturing flexibility
  • Reduced energy, capital and direct material costs
  • Improved adhesion of surface treatments

Superior cleaners

Offering excellent weatherability, water repellency and aesthetics in addition to proven performance, our leading cleaners and sealants include:

  • DOWSIL™ OS Fluids – ozone safe volatile fluids developed specifically for use as a precision cleaning agent and carrier
  • DS-1000 Aqueous Silicone Cleaner – for use on uncured silicones to clean surface, equipment and manufacturing units
  • DS-2025 Cleaner – for use on cured silicones to clearn surfaces, equipment and manufacturing units

Potent primers

Ranging from simple cleaning to more complex etching or the application of reactive silane coupling agents to achieve optimal bonding, our primers, prime coats and adhesion promoters include:

  • Surface treatments to achieve improved adhesion in electronic components
  • DOWSIL™ Primer-C OS, which offers a low-VOC and fluorescing feature to allow for a visual quality control check to ensure proper primer application
  • DOWSIL™ 92-023 Primer to enhance bonding/adhesion of RTV and heat-cure silicones to numerous materials for increased reliability and design flexibility
