“We are thrilled to be recognized for our innovative products. Our goal has always been to leverage science and technology to create valuable solutions for the industry and society. This achievement acknowledges Dow’s capabilities to continuously improve product performance and be a leader in responding to industry needs,” said Wu Chang, technical service and development director, Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics, Asia Pacific.

COF Stable Resin: Taking packaging efficiency to the next level
COF Stable Resin XUS 59999.110 is an innovative solution specially developed to address a limitation in the flexible packaging industry by increasing productivity. The resin provides stable COF of lamination films throughout the entire process of lamination, curing, storage and transportation. This in turn offers higher efficiency on fast speed packaging lines by minimizing film breakages and interruptions.


Dow's COF Stable Resin XUS 59999.110 was recognized as an innovative solution for flexible packaging.

The panel of judges from the 2020 Ringier Technology Awards praised: “The COF Stable Resin is a highly innovative product that is created using rare COF modification technique, designed to enhance the efficiency for both manufacturers and brand owners. Its significant and widespread application highlights how it is a viable solution to challenges in the flexible packaging industry.”

Olefin Block Copolymer (OBC): An innovative solution for the bike sharing industry
Olefin Block Copolymers (OBC) based foam tire is a new solution developed for the bike sharing industry to introduce tires that are lightweight, durable and require no maintenance. With Dow’s unique OBC product and working closely with downstream partners, the new foamed integrated tires are puncture-resistant, tough, elastic, heat-resistant and up to 40 per cent lighter in weight when compared to pneumatic tires, thus giving end users a better riding experience.

Judges from the awards panel shared: “The current tires being offered are heavy and prone to wear and tear. With China’s rapid growth in its bike sharing industry, there is a strong need for high quality and long-lasting tires.  Dow’s unique OBC resins not only offered new tire solutions that are crucial to the industry and the users, it is also an environmentally friendly one.”

The 2020 Ringier Plastics Technology Innovation Awards placed Dow in the spotlight once again following their two prestigious wins from the 2019 event. With other recent wins – 2020 BIG Innovation Awards from the Business Intelligence Group for DOWSIL TC-3015 Reworkable Thermal Gel and ECOFAST Pure Sustainable Textile Treatment and 2019 R&D 100 Awards from R&D World Magazine – Dow continuously strives to bring new ideas to life.
