BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. - Effective August 1, 2005, ANGUS Chemical Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company, took responsibility for the product management of UCARLNK XL-29SE crosslinker, a product formerly housed under Dow's Epoxy Products and Intermediates (EP&I) global business unit. ANGUS is already strongly aligned with the key applications where UCARLNK is used, including paints and coatings.

As part of the transition, the UCARLNK product family will be rebranded under the ZOLDINE trademark to align more directly with the ANGUS product portfolio, which includes a range of ZOLDINE oxazolidine crosslinkers. The product specifications will remain unchanged, and the product will continue to be manufactured at Dow's plant in West Virginia.
