The Dow Chemical Company


Dow combines the power of science and technology with the Human Element to passionately innovate what is essential to human progress. The Company connects chemistry and innovation with the principles of sustainability to help address many of the world's most challenging problems such as the need for clean water, renewable energy generation and conservation, and increasing agricultural productivity. Dow's diversified industry-leading portfolio of specialty chemical, advanced materials, agrosciences and plastics businesses delivers a broad range of technology-based products and solutions to customers in approximately 160 countries and in high growth sectors such as electronics, water, energy, coatings and agriculture.

Flexible Packaging Adhesive Chemical Business:

Dow Adhesives, formerly Rohm and Haas, brings its wide-reaching flexible packaging adhesives portfolio to work every day, around the globe. Converters have come to rely on the latest innovations in bio-friendly water-based, solventless and specialty adhesives for nearly every packaging application — from general purpose through high performance, including new cold seal, heat-seal and clear retort adhesives.

Flexible packing for foods and others consumer goods has been around for a long time and now is essential for efficient distribution, protection and economics. Today's packaging could not exist in its myriad forms and functionalities without, amongst many other components, the integral part played by flexible packaging adhesives. One of the earliest classes of material used for adhesives to marry dissimilar materials together were natural products based on waxes, petroleum exudates, pine gums, and various sugars, starches and proteins. These are still used, but not in the scope of today's more sophisticated packaging, and will not be discussed here. Rather the focus will be on synthetic materials created specifically for the laminating adhesives

Flexible packaging adhesives are predominately based on urethane and acrylic chemistry. Backbone options create unique performance properties. Changes in composition determine whether the adhesive will be solvent, water or solventless based. While the starting components are limited to FDA compliance lists, the resultant adhesives are complex. These meet the challenges from simple, non-demanding packages to the most severe requirements. DOW CONFIDENTIAL - Do not share without permission

Adhesives for tomorrow's Packaging needs today....

 Robust performance in advanced packaging lamination


High temperature resistance for hot fill and microwavable packaging.

 The most reliable laminations for retort pouch

Outstanding resistance to chemicals

 Fast cure, fast processing solutions that increase productivity.


Dow has established Flexible Packaging Adhesive testing lab in Singapore to enhance our presence in SEA and to provide excellent quality service to our customers.

We need innovative and diligent inputs from young people who are keen in exploring adhesive and enriching the technical know-how in Flexible Packaging.

Current Projects:

1. Improved Water Based Adhesive

2. High Running Solid Solvent Based Adhesive
