The construction industry in Europe, Middle East and Africa is changing. Demand for high-performance, cost effective and environmentally advanced building products continues to increase as the sector adapts to meet the challenges of energy efficiency, economic constraints and demand for structures equipped for 21st century living.
Dow Construction Chemicals has evolved to address those needs and combines the capabilities of Rohm and Haas Company, acquired by Dow in 2009, and Dow Wolff Cellulosics, formed in 2007, to create a powerful business with a broad product portfolio based on acrylic emulsion polymers, redispersible latex powder, and cellulosic technology.
Dow Construction Chemicals brings together the combined expertise and high research and development competence based on 40-year industry experience of Rohm and Haas and Dow Wolff Cellulosics. We offer in-depth application knowhow as well as effective formulation support to manufacturers of building and construction products around the world - a strong construction-focused business unit supported by global research, technical service and manufacturing facilities.
Combining the resources of two entities has resulted in a worldwide network of research and manufacturing capabilities well equipped to meet the demands of today's businesses.
