Dow provides sustainable solutions for London 2012 that make a difference

Dow has provided key sustainable science and chemistry- based solutions to assist in the planning, building and legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

As well as producing a sustainable, fabric ?wrap? that will encircle London?s iconic Olympic Stadium, Dow solutions are making a difference in several diverse areas. Solutions include moisture-resistance roofing for the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Village, the Main Press Centre and the International Broadcast Centre; a softer and more sustainable pitch for field hockey; components for more efficient wire and cabling for reliable transmission and distribution of signals during the Games; and a durable, slip-resistance surface at Eton Manor Sports Complex to improve safety for athletes.

Dow has been a Worldwide Olympic Partner since 2010. The company started working on Olympic Games projects in 1980 when providing insulation that was used in ice skating rinks and bobsled runs at the Lake Placid Winter Games. From helping to reduce energy usage and CO2 emissions in Olympic venues, to developing improved playing surfaces for athletes, Dow provides specialty products that highlight the important role chemistry plays in sports and everyday life.
