DOWSIL Replaces Dow Corning

Last year Dow unveiled DOWSIL™ as the new product brand name for Dow Corning branded silicone products. Through a phased implementation our Dow Corning branded silicone products will be gradually renamed DOWSIL. Other product brands from Dow Corning, such as XIAMETER, will remain unchanged.

The new name DOWSIL represents the collective experience and combined power of Dow and Dow Corning, and emphasizes their longstanding global expertise in silicone technologies across dozens of industries.
