Dow Corning and Dow Polyurethanes products combined in new PU additives family

January 18/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) -- As part of DowDuPont Materials Science Divisions ongoing commitment to provide customers with greater access to expertise and products, the company announced that the technologies of Dow Corning Polyurethane Additives (PUA) will be incorporated into the Dow Polyurethanes portfolio under the Vorasurf polyurethane additives brand name, as per GV.

Vorasurf polyurethane additives will serve the ComfortScience, InsulationScience and DurableScience markets of Dow Polyurethanes, helping to meet growing demand for products like bedding, spray foam and footwear. Now, in addition to the proven silicone surfactants customers depend on to produce flexible, rigid and microcellular polyurethane foams, customers in these markets will have access to a rich portfolio of global polyurethane solutions, systems and capabilities - all backed by Dows polyurethane expertise.

We are adding over 100 Dow Corning PUA products to the polyurethanes portfolio, expanding our already extensive toolbox of proven silicone surfactants for high-performance polyurethane foam," said Richard James, global segment leader for polyurethane additives. "In addition to expanding our portfolio, we are continuing to innovate with advanced products like low volatile organic compounds (VOC) automotive surfactants and new hydrofluoroolefin (HFO) compatible products."

The transition to the Vorasurf brand name will begin in November 2017 and will be fully transitioned by the end of 2018. All Dow Corning PUA products will still be offered, but to help ensure a smooth transition, updated product names will feature Dow Cornings DC and retain the original product grade numbers (i.e. DC 193, DC 2525, DC 5950, etc.). A full listing of all updated product names can be found in the Dow Corning information center.

As MRC wrote before, in 2012, three major chemical companies: Dow Chemical, Formosa Plastics, and Chevron Phillips Chemical had unveiled  their expansion plans in North America basing on deposits in the Marcellus Shale Formation in New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. One of the upcoming projects of Dow Chemical basing on attractive price of shale gas is propylene project in Freeport, Texas.

The Dow Chemical Company is an American multinational chemical corporation. Dow is a large producer of plastics, including polystyrene, polyurethane, polyethylene, polypropylene, and synthetic rubber.
