In late May 2017, Dow announced that work had begun to integrate Dow Corning’s business into the broader structure of The Dow Chemical Company.
The integration activities include the merging of Dow Corning’s and Dow’s SAP/enterprise resource planning systems, product branding updates, legal entity changes and a new website.
Dow plans to move forward with implementation set for February 2018, reaching customers throughout the world.
Updated Product Brand Names
Recently, Dow unveiled DOWSIL™ as part of a series of branding changes to come. The information center now includes more in-depth details about these product brand changes, as well as a complete list of existing products and their future product names.
It is important to note that most Dow Corning® and Dow Corning Toray branded products will move to the new DOWSIL™ product brand. Other product brands from Dow Corning, such as MOLYKOTE™, XIAMETER™ and SILASTIC™, will remain as they are today.
You are encouraged to familiarise yourself with the sample list of product brand changes available on the information centre as soon as possible to better understand the extent of how these changes may impact you. The information centre also includes a tool that allows you to generate a chemical equivalency certificate for your specific product which can be found here.
Ensuring a positive experience for you throughout this integration is a top priority for us. Some of these integration activities may result in the need for you to make administrative adjustments. We are committed to providing you with timely and consistent updates so that you can adequately prepare.
In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact your local Univar representative to assist with any additional questions or concerns you may have.
