Dow announced a capacity expansion from its minority equity investment in SAS Chemicals GmbH, a German-based specialty chemical producer of sealants and components used in insulating glass manufacturing, to create a more holistic façade offering.

With the capacity expansion at SAS Chemicals GmbH, Dow has a broader range and capacity of high-performance adhesives and sealants solutions for insulating glass manufacturers.

"With expanded capacity and products, our customers will benefit from a total-system solution of sealant and adhesive technologies that meet the performance, productivity and quality needs of the façade and window segments," said Jean-Paul Hautekeer, global strategic market director for Building & Infrastructure at Dow Consumer Solutions. "This investment is reinforcing our position as a leading materials science supplier in the global façades industry."

Dow has a minority equity investment in SAS Chemicals GmbH, a company that produces and supplies adhesives and sealants that are used to manufacture insulating glass windows. As part of this capacity expansion, SAS Chemicals will strengthen its operations in Germany and expand production in Turkey, which is ideally situated to efficiently serve the global market and complement existing SAS operations. SAS Chemicals' Turkey plant is expected to start up in June 2024.
