Palmer Holland Approved to Sell Dow PARALOIDâ„¢ Nationwide

We are proud to announce, effective immediately, Palmer Holland is approved to sell Dow Coating Materials’ PARALOID™ resin line throughout the entire United States. Also included in this territory expansion is DCM’s MAINCOTE™ AEH and PARALOID™ Edge products.

PARALOID™ is Dow Coatings’ polyol, thermoset and thermoplastic resin line. Dow uses a unique polymerization process for the manufacturing of solid grade PARALOID™ Resins. Unlike suspension polymerization processes used by other manufacturers, the Dow solution/extrusion process is surfactant-free. The result is remarkable - a family of PARALOID™ Resins that are less water-sensitive, offering exceptional wet film and resistance properties.
