Dow showcases innovative technologies and sustainable solutions at Automotive World 2022

“We are extremely proud to showcase our solutions to customers at Automotive World 2022, one of the world’s leading shows for advanced automotive technologies,” said Patrick McLeod, President and CEO of Dow Toray Co. Ltd., Global Director – Geographic Development of Dow Consumer Solutions “With 100 years of experience in the transportation industry, Dow continues to refine and expand our product portfolio to support transforming our customers to electric and audio-visual vehicles – delivering greater reliability, safety and performance. By working with our customers here in Japan – a key global hub for mobility solutions – we help them achieve their goals with new solutions that also offer increased sustainability.”

The company’s highlight at Automotive World 2022 is Dow’s materials science expertise for vehicle electrification, as the Official Materials Science Partner of Jaguar TCS Racing. Dow played its part in the Jaguar Racing team’s second-place finish in the 2020/2021 Formula E World Championship, helping Jaguar push the boundaries of sustainable mobility with performance-enhancing materials. From its stand at the exhibition, Dow showcases its expertise and commitment to the e-mobility and transportation industries through its MobilityScience™ platform, where advanced products and extensive services are tailored to meet specific customer needs with various applications of polyurethanes, acrylics, specialty chemicals and silicones.

Innovative solutions for e-mobility customers

Specific Dow solutions on display include ADAS-enabled materials; electronic control units (ECU); battery and power electronics products to help manage thermal, adhesion, sealing and flow issues and achieve reliable protection and shielding; automotive lighting solutions to enable safer driving conditions; and the matrix materials used to support the electronics.

In ECU and battery solutions, DOWSIL™ EC-6601 Electrically Conductive Adhesive is a next-generation material designed for reliable performance and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) in a variety of transportation, communication and consumer electronics applications. . It combines powerful shielding against electromagnetic interference (EMI) over a wide frequency range with durable mechanical and conductive properties over time.

For thermal control of ECUs and ADAS, Dow introduces its DOWSIL™ TC-45XX CV series of gap fillers. While automotive electronics bring an ever-increasing value to automotive safety, reliability, performance and comfort, they also generate higher temperatures that can reduce module functionality and reliability over time. Dow has developed – and continues to expand – a line of thermally conductive silicone gap fillers with varying levels of thermal conductivity that provide significantly improved dispensability and stable performance for more reliable applications in harsh automotive environments under the hood.

DOWSIL™ TC-45XX CV series solutions include DOWSIL™ TC-4515 CV, DOWSIL™ TC-4525 CV and DOWSIL™ TC-4535 CV, designed to provide a reliable cooling solution for modules such as a motor or transmission control, and DOWSIL™ TC-4551 resume, a new thermally conductive filler material for automotive power and sensitive electronic automotive applications.

Meanwhile, DOWSIL™ EA-4700 CV Adhesive is Dow’s new silicone solution for transportation assembly. This adhesive provides durable and fast adhesion at room temperature. Thanks to new formulation techniques, DOWSIL™ EA-4700 resume eliminates the need for thermal curing ovens while exhibiting a fast curing profile with reasonable open times. This new advanced assembly solution complements the increasingly popular use of plastic substrates in transport assembly, as its aforementioned properties allow the adhesive to quickly bond to traditional metals and plastics, including aluminum , PBT and PPS.

Lasting impact with Advanced Technologies

Throughout its product showcase at Automotive World 2022, Dow shows its commitment to meeting low-carbon mobility needs through cutting-edge materials science technologies and close collaboration with its customers. Dow’s company-wide commitment to reduce its net annual carbon emissions by an additional 15%, with an approximate 30% reduction by 2030, and carbon neutrality by 2050.
