Cary, N.C. - February 4, 2003 - UCAR Emulsion Systems (UES), a business unit of Union Carbide Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, has launched a new online resource for the paint, coatings, adhesives and sealants industries. The new Web site, located at www.ucarlatexcom, will help formulators choose the right raw materials for their specific applications. The site provides detailed information about the full line of UES services and products, including:

UCAR(tm) 100%-acrylic, vinyl acrylic and styrene acrylic latexes; NeoCAR(tm) modified vinyl versatate latexes; UCAR POLYPHOBE(tm) rheology modifiers; and CELLOSIZE(tm) hydroxyethyl cellulose

"Raw material decisions related to paints, caulks and other basic building necessities are more complex than ever," says Graves Clayton, market manager for architectural coatings at UES. "Formulators now have immediate access to the information they need 24/7."

The site is organized so that formulators can easily find the information they need, including basic product descriptions, Technical Data Sheets (TDSs), Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) and starting point formulations. By following the application's link, formulators can search for products by end use and then browse product overviews for the raw materials recommended. Through technical support, they have access to the information needed to best formulate coatings, adhesives and other construction materials with UES products.

Formulation guides, starting point formulations and a frequently asked questions (FAQ) section provide access to easy-to-understand technical information.

Finally, a resource center leads customers to industry required documents, including TDSs and MSDSs. All literature on the site is available in .pdf format for quick and easy downloading.

"The Web site is an online extension of the immense knowledge base of the UES technical and sales staff," says Clayton. "It will be a valuable tool for our customers looking for the best ways to utilize UCAR latexes and rheology modifiers in existing and new product formulations."
