DOWSIL Silicones

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.

Why use Dowsil?

  • Reliability and long lasting performance
  • High thermal stability
  • Elelctrical insulation
  • Provide protection against dust and moisture
  • Create a tight seal to prevent gas or fluid leaks
  • Work in demanding enviroments

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.
