Horgen, Switzerland -- Dow Chemical Co.'s presence at this year's European Coatings Show in Nuremberg, Germany, 29 -31 March, will take the form of a 'competence centre'.
Five Dow businesses will combine to demonstrate the benefits of the chemical company's latest technological advances in their industries.
Teaming-up at Dow's ECS display are paint and coatings business Dow Coating Materials, speciality coatings additive expert ANGUS Chemical Co., anti-microbial protector Dow Microbial Control, construction industry-focused Dow Construction Chemicals and the epoxy systems infrastructure protection specialists Dow UPPC.
From rooftop to floor, Dow says, it "has products that contribute to high performance and durable coatings that protect homes, buildings and structures, using less of the world's scarce natural resources and creating less of an overall environmental footprint."
Among many of the new products Dow will show will be technologies that improve durability, cut costs, reduce VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and odour, and improve overall handling and performance.
Dow says this includes microbial control products that keep paint in pristine condition in the can and prevent mould growing in the steamy conditions of the bathroom; and coatings that protect flooring and contribute to healthier interior conditions.
