Dow to showcase formulation-enhancing solutions at ECS 2013

Dow Coating Materials, a coatings raw materials supplier serving the global architectural and industrial coatings markets, collaborates closely with customers to develop end-use products that are faster and easier to use, resist stains, enhance air quality, offer longer-lasting protection, and use fewer natural resources. Innovations to be presented include the extended Evoque pre-composite polymer technology range, which is designed to help paint formulators maintain hiding performance while using up to 20 % less TiO2. In addition, Dow Coating Materials will highlight both the business's additives portfolio, including Acrysol rheology modifiers and Cellosize rheology modifiers for flow and levelling adjustments, Orotan dispersants designed to control dispersion and surface wetting, and its industrial portfolio, including Primal binders for wood, Maincote for general metal and its range of epoxy resins and hardeners for heavy duty coating applications as well as Fastrack acrylic emulsion, a quick-set emulsion specifically designed for use in waterborne traffic marking paints. Dow Construction Chemicals will highlight solutions that permit building material manufacturers to enhance the value they bring to applicators by formulating products that meet evolving performance requirements. The business, which offers products based on cellulose ethers, redispersible latex powders and acrylic emulsions, will feature customised solutions to enhance efficiency, durability, mechanical properties, and other critical requirements for product applications such as gypsum or tile adhesives.Dow Consumer & Industrial Solutions will showcase its multifunctional neutraliser technologies, which offer a wide range of benefits across the coating life cycle for both customers and consumers. Providing performance benefits such as product stability, efficient pigment dispersion and enhanced scrub resistance, the business also offers AEPD VOX 1000 multifunctional neutraliser, which was specifically developed for use in zero-VOC paints and offers improved freeze-thaw resistance and with virtually no odour.Dow Epoxy will feature its expanded line of curing agents, resins and diluents, including the new D.E.H. curing agent family, which brings formulators and end users benefits to enhance performance in construction chemical applications, including: Healthier indoor spaces, created through low emission curing agentsExtended application seasons, enabled by low temperature curing productsReduced time on construction site made possible with rapid curing productsIncreased durability through improved mechanical resistance
