Dow Epoxy, RS Technik Team up for Sewer Pipe Rehab
Dow Epoxy Systems, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, and RS Technik Group plan to form a global commercial alliance focusing on the sewer pipeline rehabilitation market, specifically on the trenchless technology called cured-in-place pipe (CIPP).
This alliance will combine Dow's high-technology performance resin systems, characterized by high chemical resistance and mechanical properties, with the state-of-the-art CIPP technology developed and owned by RS Technik Group. It will further increase the partners' competitive advantages and differentiate the many benefits they offer versus other CIPP providers. The announcement was made during the International Water Week held in Singapore.
"This alliance will significantly enhance the value to our customers by combining Dow's technology, innovative formulations and industrial-strength products, and global reach with RS Technik Group's state-of-the-art technology, experience, and proven business model," said Juan Antonio Merino, Dow Systems global general manager. "It is a perfect demonstration of the strategic intent of the newly formed Dow Systems global business unit that combines our Polyurethane Systems and Epoxy Systems businesses. We aim at maximizing our capability to serve our customers and the market, accelerating the value creation through a joint approach that leverages customer intimacy, operational excellence and fast, customized solutions to solve customer process and product-oriented problems."
