Dow Coating Materials Receives Innovation Award

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - February 9, 2017 - The Business Intelligence Group (BIG) recently named Dow Coating Materials, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), a winner of its 2017 Innovation Awards for PARALOID™ Edge Technology – a novel offering which continues to blaze trails inside and out of the coatings industry.


“The unceasing acknowledgement of this innovation speaks to both our commitment to industrial coatings innovation – as well as the reaching impact PARALOID™ Edge has had in such a short amount of time,” said Mary Rose Correa, North America marketing manager for Industrial Coatings, Dow Coating Materials.


The BIG Innovation Awards seek to recognize companies and technologies which bring new ideas to life, solve real problems and drive rapid progress across various industries. PARALOID™ Edge Technology was also named a 2016 R&D 100 Award Finalist.


PARALOID™ Edge ISO-Free1 Technology offers a simple solution to a common coatings challenge – minimizing the trade-off between performance and ease of use. Offering similar product characteristics expected from traditional 2K polyurethane (PU) systems, PARALOID™ Edge Technology goes a step further to expand the short window of workability to remain fluid longer, depending on conditions, without increasing dry time after application.


The novel ambient cure capability offered by PARALOID™ Edge Technology can allow for faster return-to-service, while extending pot life can facilitate once per shift make-up and potentially less material waste. This solvent-borne offering also features application flexibility and is isocyanate1 and formaldehyde2 free.


“PARALOID Edge stretches significant value across multiple industrial coatings applications,” said Dave Pierce, new business development, Dow Coating Materials. “Specifically in automotive refinish and wood applications where excellent scratch resistance, hardness, weatherability, and chemical resistance are critical.”


Applied as a primer surfacer in automotive refinishing, PARALOID™ Edge Technology can offer a dry-to-sand time in as few as 40 minutes under ambient curing conditions without sacrificing pot life, allowing body shops to notably increase their throughput. The isocyanate-free1 aspect of the product can also provide an environmental, health and safety (EHS) benefit for the body shop.


When used as a clear or pigmented primer or as a topcoat for interior wood applications, such as cabinetry and furniture, potential benefits to the applicator include shorter dry time, less material waste, and faster property development, while being both isocyanate- and formaldehyde-free1,2. Formaldehyde is currently a regulated raw material in the wood market, so having a coating that does not contain formaldehyde, is not only advantageous, but a requirement in some segments of the market.


“The cutting edge benefits of this latest PARALOID™ product family offer a more convenient, cost efficient solution while facilitating an improved environmental, health and safety profile,” said Correa. “It truly represents our ongoing dedication to furthering an impactful, sustainable portfolio which extends benefits across the entire value chain.”
