Friday, September 25, 2009

Comment | More

The Dow Chemical Company (Midland, MI) announced the opening of a new laboratory for the Elastomers Business. The lab is located at Dow's Freeport, TX R&D facility. It is used for the compounding, mixing, processing and testing of thermoset elastomers. The lab complements the existing polymer analysis, material science and physical testing capabilities at the site in support of Dow Elastomers technical service, application development, and research and development of polymer products.

Dow also is in the final stages of completing a 25 million-pound debottleneck project at its Plaquemine, LA, ethylene-propylene-diene monomer (EPDM) site. The project will be completed in first quarter 2010. The plant will continue to operate at full rates during the project. EPDM production is important to the company’s elastomers business, according to Luis Cirihal, business director at Dow Elastomers, who said, “We will continue to invest to meet growing demand of our customers.”
