Mar 13 15
The Dow Chemical Co has struck a 200-MW power purchase agreement tied to a wind park that will be built in South Texas. The particular wind project is being developed by a unit of Bordas Wind Energy LLC, which in turn is a joint venture between MAP and Enerverse LLC. It is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2016. The company will purchase the electricity generated by the wind park so it could power its Freeport manufacturing facility. The amount of electricity it would buy each year is estimated to be enough to cover the annual needs of over 55,000 households. The company has committed to secure 400 MW of clean power by 2025.
Coastal Automotive, Dow Automotive Systems Reach Licensing Agreement on Innovative BETAFOAM AFI Acoustical Foam Inserts
Mar 10 15
Coastal Automotive announced the company has reached agreement with Dow Automotive Systems, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, to license an innovative engineered acoustical foam technology for use in the automotive industry. BETAFOAM AFI is a sound mitigation product based on a unique polymer foaming technology capable of filling and sealing three-dimensional cavities. The system is comprised of expandable foam components inserted throughout body-in-white cavities such as rocker panels and support pillars. There are two product designs available. One is a distinctive patented design, similar to a honeycomb shape that allows for full flow of anti-corrosion material, thoroughly coating the interior of the automotive body prior to painting. The other design is a customizable extruded part that can be specified to meet customer needs. Both designs provide superior protection from corrosion over the life of the vehicle. As the e-coat is baked on, the heat causes BETAFOAM AFI to expand up to 3,000% of its original size, creating a solid foam component that provides excellent sound absorption within the automotive body.
