Dow Announces New and Improved Product Portfolio for Rotational Moulding


Horgen, Switzerland - March 14, 2006, The range of DOWLEX™ Polyethylene Resins from The Dow Chemical Company available to the rotational moulding market just got better.

Two new resins, available in power and granules, have recently been introduced to the market and are already providing results for rotational moulders. Compared to existing Dow resins, the new grades demonstrate a markedly wider processing window and a shorter moulding cycle, while maintaining excellent environmental stress crack resistance and impact balance.

“As a technology leader in plastics, Dow aims to offer enhanced and value-added products to our customers,” said Sander van Veen, rotational moulding market manager for Dow in Europe. “These new resins demonstrate our ability to fulfill this commitment to the rotational moulding market.”

The new resins - DOWLEX 2629 UE and DOWLEX 2631 UE in granules, and DOWLEX 2629.10 UE and DOWLEX 2631.10 UE in powder - replace the earlier grades DOWLEX NG 2429 UE and DOWLEX NG 2431 UE in granules, and DOWLEX NG 2429.10 UE and DOWLEX 2431.10 UE in powder.

DOWLEX 2432 UE, another product within Dow’s product portfolio for rotational moulding, is unaffected by the introduction of the new resins. DOWLEX 2432 UE has been in the market for several years and is recognized for its strong performance in large storage tank applications.
