“We’ve seen growing interest from our customers for lower VOC alternatives, and with DMC’s classification as a VOC-exempt solvent in qualified areas, we challenged ourselves to offer a pre-mix in DMC that could effectively address their needs without compromising performance,” said Mary Rose Correa, industrial market manager, Dow Coating Materials. “By giving our customers a product already in DMC solution, we’re helping them save time and resources. Paraloid B-66 DMC equates to one less step for formulators and, for applicators, a more reliable product that already addresses VOC compliance. We believe that we’re the first to offer customers this ready-made solution in DMC that is both high performing and cost effective.”
In addition to Paraloid B-66 DMC, Dow Coating Materials offers a full range of solutions for concrete coatings, including Maincote HG-31, a waterborne acrylic for cementitious substrates where water barrier properties are important, as well as a variety of Rhoplex Resins to meet performance needs such as good exterior weatherability, reduced water vapor permeability, dirt resistance, low solvent capability, low odor and APEO-free, being manufactured without the use of APEO surfactants.
