BUFFALO GROVE, IL -- Effective August 1, 2005, ANGUS Chemical Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, will take responsibility for the product management of UCARLNK XL-29SE crosslinker, a product formerly housed under Dow’s Epoxy Products and Intermediates (EP&I) global business unit.

ANGUS is a market-focused, solutions driven specialty chemicals business with a focus on nitroalkane-based chemistry across a wide variety of markets. ANGUS is already strongly-aligned with the key applications where UCARLNK is used including paints and coatings, leather tanning and adhesives, and offers extensive knowledge and experience within these markets.

"The transition of the UCARLNK product to ANGUS is an excellent example of the market focus of the ANGUS business, and of Dow’s strategy of reviewing business portfolios and product lines to ensure we have our product families aligned to maximize value and growth for our customers," said Mark Henning, president and CEO of ANGUS. "The product transition to the ANGUS portfolio will allow us to take a business that has been developed and nurtured by the EP&I business and add a focus on innovation and growth, which comes from our position as a specialty chemicals supplier."

As part of the transition, the UCARLNK product family will be rebranded under the ZOLDINE™ brand to align more directly with the ANGUS product portfolio which includes a range of ZOLDINE oxazolidine crosslinkers. The product specifications will remain unchanged, and will continue to be manufactured at Dow’s plant in West Virginia.

As a market-focused specialty chemicals company, ANGUS Chemical Company develops and delivers nitroalkane-based solutions to our customers for applications in latex paints, mineral slurries, metalworking fluids, water treatment, biological buffers, solvents and thinners, wood adhesives, pharmaceutical & agricultural intermediates, SBR latex shortstops, fuel additives and personal care and household products.
