Dow’s Coating and Polyolefin Dispersion Grab Edison AwardsDow received five gold awards and one silver award in the categories of: materials science and engineering; manufacturing, logistics & transportation; and sustainability, which were presented at the annual 2021 Edison Awards ceremony.

Established in 1987, the Edison Awards have honored the best in innovation and innovators. Being recognized with an Edison Award™ is one of the highest accolades a company can receive in the name of innovation and business success. Dow is the first company ever to receive five Gold Edison Awards in a year.

Combining Innovative Polymer Technology with Sustainability

DOWSIL™ CC-8030 UV and Moisture Dual Cure Conformal Coating won a gold award in the manufacturing, logistics & transportation materials for manufacturing subcategory.

DOWSIL™ CC-8030 UV and Moisture Dual Cure Conformal Coating is the first to combine innovative polymer technology with the sustainability of room temperature cure by primary ultra-violet (UV) cure and a secondary moisture cure.

DOWSIL™ CC-8030 is a one-part solventless 100 percent silicone conformal coating that offers high reliability protection of sensitive electronics and can be applied quickly and efficiently by automated processing.

RHOBARR™ 320 Polyolefin Dispersion won a gold award in the sustainability environmentally friendly subcategory. RHOBARR™ 320 Polyolefin Dispersion enables sustainable coated paper goods.

Applied as a thin coating from an aqueous dispersion, it provides barrier to liquids/grease using up to 70 percent less raw material compared to extrusion coated products, allowing paper coaters to produce more sustainable, more recyclable food service items and packaging.

A.N. Sreeram, senior vice president, research & development, and chief technology officer, said, “Thomas A. Edison was one of the world’s greatest and most prolific inventors who had a tremendous influence on our modern-day lives. His inventions centered on market needs just like Dow’s do today. It is an honor to receive these namesake innovation awards, which recognize that Dow technologies solve customer and societal needs, simultaneously deliver product performance and sustainability, while also creating value for our shareholders.”
