Dow Introduces DOWSIL 8016 Waterborne Resin to Address Environmental Issues

In March 2020, Dow, a leading material science company, announced the launch of new generation silicone resin emulsion, DOWSIL 8016. The waterborne resin is ideal for high-temperature waterborne coating systems and contributes to the lower emission and odor of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In addition to this, the resin formulation offers elevated coating hardness for metal substrates and extreme temperature resistance of about 500-6000 C. Apart from this, the company launched DOWSIL 107F Additive that is an anti-foam agent that is designed to formulate for industrial applications such as wood, architectural, and metal coatings.

The major companies such as Dow are constantly working on providing effective solutions to ease the environmental pressure and adhere to the stringent government regulations that will drive the demand for advanced paints & coatings additives in the forthcoming years.
