Dow offers a comprehensive range of high-performance polyurethane systems, polyether polyols and MDI isocyanates. Dow has created durable, moisture-resistant and energy code-eligible solutions while providing continuous insulation, eliminating thermal shorts and moving dew point outside the cavity wall.

Dow’s latest innovations being showcased at World of Concrete include:
VORAMER™ MN 2314 Prepolymer: an easy-to-process, low viscosity and semi-formulated polyurethane prepolymer for the formulation of concrete adhesives and sealants
ISONATE™ 128 MDI: a liquid MDI with superior handling and storage stability compared to pure MDI.
TRAFFIDECK™ Waterproofing and Anti-Slip Surfacing System: a liquid-applied waterproofing system that forms a durable and long-lasting waterproof for inverted roofs, plaza decks, terraces and green roofs.
VORASTAR™ 7000 Elastomeric Coating: a durable coating that provides enhanced protection of concrete and steel substrate exposed to corrosive chemicals.
