Steven R. Block to present fluorosilicone hybrid coatings at SCAA

Dow Corning Corporation fluorosilicone innovation expert Steven R. Block will present Fluorosilicone Hybrid Coatings: Bridging the Gap between Performance and Sustainability at the Surface Coatings Across Australia (SCAA) Eco Footprint Conference, which will take place August 6-8 in Glenelg, South Australia.

Block, whose presentation was named this conference's Lou Cash Memorial Lecture, will discuss recent developments in fluorosilicone hybrids for coatings and additives, and how these developments provide unique performance benefits while satisfying demanding environmental requirements and employing many of Dow Corning's Eco-Design Principles.

“Innovative fluorosilicone materials are a springboard for sustainable business,” said Block of Dow Corning's Fluorine Business Program. “They also offer concrete solutions that can reduce the environmental footprint of coatings. New fluorosilicone coating technologies can reduce the use of VOCs and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), and conserve energy by requiring lower cure temperatures and shorter cure cycles.” For example, the implementation of a new UV cure fluorosilicone hybrid coating technology could save enough energy to heat approximately 180,000 houses in the U.S. each year.

In his presentation, Block will also discuss innovative fluorosilicone applications that improve quality of life, such as new fluorosilicone surface coatings that actually repel fingerprints and associated contaminants. With an increasing number of electronic devices now offering touch-screen displays, keeping surfaces free of fingerprints is increasingly important. Block will highlight this and other performance and sustainability benefits of using fluorosilicone coatings.

The Sustainable Coatings Across Australia Eco Footprint Conference will take place August 6-8, 2009, in Glenelg, South Australia. Hosted by the Surface Coatings Association Australia (SCAA), the conference brings together members who are involved in the supply of raw materials and the end users of these materials in the manufacture of paint, printing ink, adhesives and cosmetics.

Dow Corning's fluorosilicone technology platform is an important development that offers innovation and sustainability, enabling improved surface performance. Active in the coatings industry, Dow Corning offers a wide and growing range of silicon-based product and service solutions. With its patented versatile fluorosilicone technologies, the company is developing new and improved materials for driving customer growth in existing and new markets with high-value, differentiated products. This technology platform can provide distinct sustainable competitive advantages and offer an option for replacing regulated fluorine-based products.
