Dow Automotive Systems, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, has opened two new composite technology centres, one in Switzerland and the second in the U.S.

Opened in April, a 2,000-square-foot Composite Technology Center in Freienbach, Switzerland, will develop composite applications through a large high pressure resin transfer molding machine (RTM) for prototype production. The Freienbach site also has an Adhesives Training Center.

The second centre, a 5,000-square-foot facility, opened in June in Midland, Mich., which is also where Dow is headquartered. According to Dow, this centre accommodates technologies associated with direct long-fiber processing, prepreg, preforming, compression molding and laminating.

 “In two key locations, we now offer critical on-site composites material and processing development capabilities that will further our expertise in this area,” said Peter Cate, global strategic marketer for composites.
