Dow Announces Completion of 30 KTA Liquid Epoxy Resin Expansion at Stade Site

Dow Epoxy, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, completed its 30 KTA Liquid Epoxy Resin (LER) expansion at its fully back-integrated Stade, Germany site. The facility, which has now been ramped up to full production rates, will increase the Company’s global LER capacity by 10 percent. This will improve the reliability of Dow’s supply chain and epoxy assets, allowing Dow to better serve its customers and to continue to grow with the marketplace.

“Our goal is to leverage and sell more epoxy resins and curing agents,” said Davor Safar, global resins leader for Epoxy. “Our strong integration is a powerful complement to our rapidly growing innovation portfolio which will enable us to drive value growth for our customers.”

Dow is focused on growing in applications such as composites, electronics, civil engineering and coatings. The Company’s $1.6 billion annual R&D budget will allow for long-term growth in these segments and will fuel Epoxy’s innovation pipeline. The Company aims to grow and improve earnings by packaging innovative epoxy offerings, such as high performance D.E.H.™ curing agents and FORTEGRA™ tougheners, with standard resins to help customers achieve their growth goals.
