Dow has unveiled two polyurethane products for protecting infrastructure in the harshest environments.

VORASTAR 7000 Polyurethane Spray Elastomer System is a two-component polyurea hybrid coating material designed to protect concrete containment structures and steel surfaces from corrosion in tough chemical environments.

Dow's new polyurethanes are designed to increase the durability of infrastructure assets.

Appropriate for steel tanks, pipelines and chemical holding tanks, the system is formulated to provide chemical and moisture resistance, as well as flexibility and performance at temperatures down to -50°C.

Dow says the low-viscosity material can help reduce spray machine downtime and shorten application times.

VORASPEC 58 Toughened Epoxy Binder is a reactive toughener system designed for tougher epoxy coatings for a wide range of industrial applications.

The performance additive is easy to process and can be used in a variety of coatings, adhesives and sealants, according to Dow. The product "offers improved miscibility, processing, impact resistance, and flexibility across a wide temperature range," the manufacturer says.
