Dow Corning to showcase innovative silicone applications at China Auto Parts Expo


Dow Corning Corporation will showcase a complete line of performance-enhancing silicone solutions for automotive applications at the Auto Parts Expo 2009 in Beijing, China, from September 24-26.

Amid the global economic downturn, the auto industry has suffered slow or even negative growth. In response to this trend, Dow Corning has focused on equipping OEMs and suppliers at all levels with more innovative, efficient and cost-effective solutions.

“The automotive sector must find new ways to streamline operations while still producing high-quality, innovative products,” said Malone Yan, Greater China automotive industry Sales Manager. “Dow Corning is proud to enable this process through our recent business strategy transformation and expansion of the XIAMETER® brand, as well as a continued lineup of innovative automotive solutions.”

In June, Dow Corning created the world’s largest online marketplace for silicone materials through a significant expansion of its XIAMETER business model. XIAMETER is specifically designed to help customers from almost all industries be more innovative, sustainable and efficient.

At the Auto Parts Expo, Dow Corning will showcase Silastic® 100% Fluoro Liquid Silicone Rubber (F-LSR), a new fully fluorinated two-part injection moldable elastomer designed to meet increasingly stringent automotive engine temperatures, fuel and oil resistance specifications while improving environmental sustainability and cost efficiency during manufacturing.

Dow Corning silicones enable automotive manufacturers to streamline their operations and produce more efficient, cleaner automobiles by offering a complete line of high-quality silicone solutions that enable innovation in automotive design. From silicones that withstand extreme temperatures and pressures to solutions that reduce the cost of producing more efficient “green” tires, Dow Corning is at the forefront of automotive industry innovation.
