The History of North American Urethanes: Dow Chemical

We’ve got a new project at the Urethane Blog to record how the North American urethanes industry has grown and changed over the years.  This information is only possible because of the help of many experienced industry veterans.  Special recognition goes out to Dave Threlkeld, who helped design the project.  Our first profile is of Dow Chemical.  Hopefully you will find this interesting and if we’ve missed anything, please contact us as this is an ongoing project.  Be sure to click through to the website to get all of the information.
