Dow to invest in PU elastomers

April 27/2012

(plasteurope) -- A new technical centre has been opened by Dow Formulated Systems, a business unit of Dow Chemical (Midland, Michigan / USA), at its UK facility located in Birch Vale, Derbyshire. The application and customer service centre has been established to facilitate growth in Dows engineering elastomers and other specialty PU systems markets. It will enable customers to rapidly test and scale-up new products that utilise Dow technology.

"Our new application development centre further enhances Dows customer service across Europe," said Paul Fitzgerald, marketing manager Engineering Elastomers. "We are committed to providing customers with fast solutions and our new technical service and demonstration centre allows us to do this by offering customers the benefit of trialling products without putting their production on hold."

The new UK facility is the third recent investment by Dow in its polyurethane businesses. In November 2011, it inaugurated a new research and development centre at its PU systems house in Correggio / Italy. This is operating as a global R&D centre for PU foams and composites for Dows formulated systems, polyurethanes and automotive businesses, as well as a laboratory for the local technical and commercial organisation of the Italian systems house, employing about 70 people.
