A presentation given by Dow Corning’s Fluorine Technology Program Sales Development Manager Steven R. Block at the 10th Annual International Coatings for Plastics Symposium™ in June, co-hosted byPaint & Coatings IndustryandFinishing Todaymagazines, was awarded “The Best Paper of the Symposium.”

Titled "New Chemistry Improves Surface Performance," the presentation was based on work by Dow Corning and Daikin Industries, Ltd., and focused on high-value fluorosilicone hybrid coatings with notable advantages over current coating technologies. The new technology provides high hardness, high flexibility, adhesion to low surface energy surfaces, chemical resistance, fast cure at low temperatures, and high gloss properties of the coatings. Look for an article based on the presentation in an upcoming issue of Finishing Todaymagazine.
