Dow Corning Silicone Intermediate Increases Coating Performance

Published December 11, 2013
Dow Corning’s proven Dow Corning 3074 Intermediate – used extensively as a reliable, high-performance material of choice in the demanding architectural, marine and industrial sectors – is now available for food-contact applications. This versatile, solventless liquid silicone resin is designed to blend easily with organic or other silicone resins to extend and improve the processability and performance of coating systems. It provides exceptional high-temperature resistance, durability and weatherability for a broad range of coating formulations, while minimizing the release of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for increased sustainability. 

Notably, Dow Corning 3074 Intermediate – when used in compliance with U.S. Federal Drug Administration (FDA) 21 CFR 175.300 – is ideally suited for food contact applications that require resistance to extreme heat or aim to improve the durability of interior and exterior coatings used in cookware and bakeware products. In addition, it has been positively assessed according to Germany’s Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung (BfR) Recommendation XV. on Silicone for food contact. While not an actual certificate of compliance, the assessment showed that Dow Corning 3074 Intermediate – when used as an additive in plastic materials and processed and cured as directed by Dow Corning – will meet the requirements for finished products for use in contact with foodstuffs.
“Solventless Dow Corning 3074 Intermediate resin spotlights the tremendous value and versatility of our coatings technologies, which ultimately helps our customers differentiate their products, penetrate entirely new coating segments and gain a strong competitive edge,” said Jim Stange, Dow Corning’s North America market manager, Coatings. “Dow Corning’s extensive knowledge and expertise in the coatings industry allows us to proactively address market needs and provide customers with advanced resin coating solutions for a potentially unlimited range of high-performance coating formulations.  Offering Dow Corning 3074 Intermediate resin for food contact applications, when used in compliance with FDA 21 CFR 175.3000, underscores our commitment to the industry and our customers.”
