BETASEAL™ 16709 glass bonding adhesive from
Dow Automotive has been named a winner in the second annual 2018
Adhesives & Sealants Council Innovation Awards competition. It
was also named a finalist by the 2017 R&D 100 Awards judges.
MOLYKOTE™ lubricants regularly are used under
the hood of driver Austin Dillon's racecar, but the 25th running of
the Brickyard 400 on Sept. 9 brings the addition of MOLYKOTE™
branding on the side panels of the No. 3 Dow MOLYKOTE™ Chevrolet
Rubber-to-metal bonding is essential for
automotive under-the-hood, powertrain and chassis anti-vibration
applications. Part of a product family from Dow that includes MEGUM™
and other THIXON™ rubber-to-substrate bonding agents, new THIXON
P-11-F and P-22 primer systems provide outstanding performance and
competitive cost with a REACH-compliant octylphenol-free formulation.
A viable alternative to solvent-based bonding
agents for rubber-to-metal anti-vibration applications is now
available from Dow. The new generation of MEGUM™ water-based primer
and cover coat systems provides outstanding performance – equal to
solvent-based formulations – with significantly reduced VOCs – all
at a competitive cost.
Dow Automotive will put innovation in the
spotlight during the Deutsche Kautschuk-Tagung (DKT) 2018 conference
taking place from 2 to 5 July 2018 in Nuremberg and will be present
in Hall 12, Stand 347.
Founded in 1948 by American scientist Alfred

The new carbon fiber reinforced plastic
(CFRP) rear wall structure developed for the Audi A8 and powered by
Dow has won the JEC Innovation Award in the Automotive Process Category.
Battery packs for electric vehicle platforms
consist of many different substrates. Assembling and sealing them is
critical for temperature management, durability and reliable operation.
High-volume manufacturing of complex CFRP
components is now possible. Composite-based design coupled with
innovative, cost-efficient production technologies is enabling mass
production of large, lightweight, complex carbon fiber reinforced
plastic (CFRP) components for passenger vehicles.
Aston Martin and Dow have announced the
continuation of their successful technical development partnership,
paving the way for further joint advancement to drive innovation and
New technology from Dow Automotive Systems
that enables the processing speed and recyclability needed to
utilize carbon fiber composites in mass production has been selected
as a 2018 Automotive News PACE Award finalist.
Recent flammability tests show three grades
of Dow BETAMATE structural adhesives pass the 2018 EN45545-2 Norm
for use in railway vehicles.
Twenty innovative new products from The Dow Chemical Company, a
