Dow Automotive Systems, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company (Dow), is expanding its capabilities in composite processing technology with the opening of two Dow development facilities – one in Freienbach, Switzerland and the other in Midland, MI, USA.

In Freienbach, the Composite Technology Center offers an infrastructure to develop composite applications paired with the appropriate joining technology. The 200 qm laboratory opened in April and is equipped with a large high pressure resin transfer molding machine (RTM) for prototype production. It also offers development and testing facilities for resins and related adhesives. An Adhesives Training Center is also available as part of the facility.

In Midland, Dow is also creating a center to accommodate technologies associated with direct long-fiber processing, prepreg, preforming, compression molding and laminating. This 465 qm site is co-located with key corporate research and development capabilities including analytical sciences, the Materials Engineering Center and a wealth of polymer chemistry and processing related expertise. The close proximity of this laboratory to Auburn Hills, MI,. and the Dow Automotive Center of Competence for Adhesive Technology Development in North America shall enable the teams to combine best practices in these areas. The Midland facility will be operational in June.
