Tuesday, June 2, 2009

Comment | More

The Dow Chemical Company (Midland, MI) has announced that its newly formed business unit, Dow Coating Materials, will be the world’s largest supplier of coatings raw materials and technologies. Establishment of the new unit follows Dow’s acquisition of Rohm & Haas in April 2009. The new business will combine the resources and technologies of Dow Coating Solutions with Rohm & Haas’ paint and coating materials to supply raw materials for architectural and industrial coatings.

Dow Coating Materials will provide several different product lines, including latex emulsions (acrylics, vinyl acrylics, styrene acrylics), epoxies, solution vinyl resins, and other polymer technologies. The business will offer rheology modifiers, including HASE, HEUR, and cellulosic-based products. The new company also plans to enhance other product lines within Dow, such as biocides, acrylic monomers, surfactants, and polyurethanes.
