Shanghai, China - Dow has unveiled its newly formed Dow Coatings Materials business unit, which combines the technologies and resources of both Dow and its recently-acquired Rohm & Haas business, the company said 3 June.
"As the world's largest and most technologically-advanced developer of raw materials for the coatings industry, our primary focus is to enable the coatings innovations of both today and tomorrow," said Luis Fernandez, the new vice president of Dow Coatings Materials.
The company will provide a wide range of chemistries and support across a number of product lines, including polyurethanes and surfactants amongst others.
"With global R&D centres around the world and access to powerful tools such as High-Throughput Experimentation (HTE) methods, Dow Coatings Materials offers the industry a unique resource unlike any it has ever seen," Fernandez concluded.
Dow announced it had closed the acquisition of Rohm & Haas on 13 May.
