Midland, Mich. – January 20, 2021 – Dow (NYSE: DOW) today announced it has received three innovation awards from the Business Intelligence Group (BIG) for breakthrough technologies. BIG’s Innovation Awards recognizes organizations, products, and people that are bringing new ideas to life in innovative ways.
“Our innovations continue to position Dow to deliver differentiated products and solutions for our customers, bringing value to our shareholders and addressing some of the world’s greatest challenges.” said A.N. Sreeram, senior vice president of Research and Development and chief technology officer for Dow. “Our scientists and engineers use Dow’s unique-to-the-world capabilities to deliver market-driven solutions to our customers that are simultaneously better performing and more sustainable. It is great that the Business Intelligence Group is again recognizing the impact of Dow’s innovative products.”
This marks the fifth consecutive year Dow technologies have been awarded BIG Innovation Awards. The award-winning technologies from Dow this year include:
- DOWSIL™ TC-3065 Thermally Conductive Gel is a one-part, heat cure silicone based thermally conductive gel positioned as a leading material in optical transceiver in vital 5G telecom and data center applications. The material provides high thermal conductivity with electrical isolation, high extrusion rate (65g/min), high compressibility, no silicone oil bleeding and ultra-low VOC. These unique properties enable use and rework ability of high-power density chipsets and electronic components for a sustainable solution. High thermal conductivity performance (above 6W/mK) requires sophisticated composites engineered with a highly effective filler loading. The ability to combine composites with these high thermal and soft physical properties provides a unique differentiator to optoelectronic manufacturers.
- DOWSIL™ 993N Structural Glazing Sealant and Catalyst is a two-component, neutral curing silicone adhesive/sealant formulation specifically developed for the structural bonding of glass, metal and other building components. 993N meets the European standard ETAG002. It exhibits excellent weathering properties and has high resistance to ultraviolet radiation, heat and humidity once cured. This high-modulus sealant has excellent adhesion to a wide range of materials and is the gold standard, proven by many case studies found on dow.com. The new and improved version offers greatly improved elongation and a higher extrusion rate at a great value.
- Dow: World's First Commercial Polyurethane-Carbon Fiber Spar Cap for New Generation of Wind Blades - Dow and DowAksa collaboratively debuted a disruptive technology marrying polyurethane chemistry and carbon fiber into a customized process, for a stronger and lighter composite material. Applied into the spar cap in modern wind blades, this technology accelerates our ability to meet the global growth demand for wind power and a sustainable energy future. This novel technology covers the range from chemistry to manufacturing hardware, enabling perfect impregnation of +10 MM carbon filaments, being the first in solving this industry challenge. The novel composite material demonstrated the best properties-productivity balance when compared with incumbent resins. This newly minted material exemplifies the power of science and its boundless potential in helping us build a more sustainable future.
