Dow Corning is an American multinational corporation headquartered in Midland, Michigan, USA. Dow Corning specializes in silicone and silicon-based technology, offering more than 7,000 products and services. Dow Corning is an equally owned joint venture of Dow Chemical and Corning. On November 13, 2014, Dow Chemical's CEO Andrew N. Liveris revealed in a presentation to investors that Corning Incorporated intended to exit the joint venture of 71 years, citing other priorities. It is speculated that Dow could be taking over the Corning's stake at Dow Corning. Liveris declined to disclose details. Wikipedia.

A method for decreasing the vapour permeability of a water and air barrier treated substrate that includes treating the substrate with a liquid applied, vapour permeable air and water barrier coating composition comprising a cross-linked polysiloxane dispersion composition.


A production method for a liquid high purity sugar derivative-modified silicone or a composition thereof, the method comprising the steps of: capturing hydrophilic impurities in solid particles by causing an impurity containing composition containing liquid sugar derivative-modified silicone and the hydrophilic impurities derived from a sugar derivative to contact the solid particles, the sugar derivative being a hydrophilic modifier of the sugar derivative-modified silicone, and the solid particles being able to capture the hydrophilic impurities; and separating the sugar derivative-modified silicone and the solid particles. The present invention provides the production method for the liquid high-purity sugar derivative-modified silicone and the composition thereof useful for production on a commercial scale.


A production method of a liquid high-purity polyhydric alcohol derivative-modified silicone or a composition thereof, the method comprising: a capturing step of bringing into an impurity-containing composition containing a liquid polyhydric alcohol derivative-modified silicone and hydrophilic impurities originating from a polyhydric alcohol derivative, the polyhydric alcohol derivative being a hydrophilic modifier of the polyhydric alcohol derivative-modified silicone, into contact with solid particles capable of capturing the hydrophilic impurities, and then capturing the hydrophilic impurities with the solid particles; and a separating step of separating the polyhydric alcohol derivative-modified silicone and the solid particles. An object of the present invention is to provide a production method of a liquid high-purity polyhydric alcohol derivative-modified silicone and a composition thereof useful for production on a commercial scale.


The present invention provides an adhesion promoter that can achieve excellent initial adhesion improvement effects towards various types of substrates, a curable organopolysiloxane composition containing this adhesion promoter, and a protective agent or adhesive composition for electric and electronic components. An adhesion promoter containing the following components (A) to (C) in a specific weight ratio, a curable organopolysiloxane composition containing this adhesion promoter, and a particular agent for electric and electronic components:(A) A reaction mixture of an organoalkoxysilane having an amino group and an organoalkoxysilane having an epoxy group; (B) An organic compound having at least two alkoxysilyl groups in a molecule and having a bond other than a silicone-oxygen bond between these silyl groups; (C) a silane containing an epoxy group or a partially hydrolyzed condensate thereof.


Provided are a thermally conductive silicone composition excelling in heat resistance and thermal conductivity, in which thickening in an uncured state is suppressed, and which has excellent handling ease; and an electrical/electronic apparatus in which said thermally conductive silicone composition is used as a member. A thermally conductive silicone composition comprising (A) 100 parts by mass of either (a1) an organopolysiloxane having, in each molecule thereof, at least one alkoxysilyl-containing group bonded to a silicon atom and expressed by the general formula:

The invention relates to branched organopolysiloxanes and to their preparation and use. A branched organopolysiloxane is prepared by the reaction of an alkoxysilane with a substantially linear organopolysiloxane containing at least one hydroxyl or hydrolysable group bonded to silicon, in the presence of a phosphazene catalyst. The branched organopolysiloxanes obtained can be suitable for use in a moisture curable sealant composition capable of curing to a high modulus seal, with less tendency to gel than when using other siloxane polycondensation catalysts. Phosphazene catalysts also have the advantage that the content of undesired low molecular weight cyclic silicones in the polymerisation product is low.


The present invention provides a curable organopolysiloxane composition that can achieve excellent initial adhesion improvement effects towards various types of substrates, and a protective agent or adhesive composition for electric and electronic components.A curable organopolysiloxane composition containing: (A) an organopolysiloxane (a1) having a specific alkoxysilyl group and at least an average of 0.5 alkenyl groups, or a mixture of (a1) and (a2) an organopolysiloxane that has at least 2 alkenyl groups in a molecule, and that does not have the aforementioned group having an alkoxysilyl group {the amount of component (a1) in the mixture is 10 to 100 mass% (however not including 100 mass%)}, (B) an organopolysiloxane having at least two silicon-bonded hydrogen atoms in each molecule, (C) a catalyst for a hydrosilylation reaction, and (D) a catalyst for a condensation reaction.

SusPIRE project assimilates in its conception the sustainable energy use challenge described in the European SETPLAN and in SPIRE road map. It addresses its efforts to energy intensive industries and within this segment market to energy recovery from residual heat streams. To achieve this goal a two clearly differentiated working areas will be key aspects of this project. Technology area will include the development of materials and equipments. New Heat Transfer Fluids (HTF) and Phase Change Materials (PCM) will be the base for manufacture high efficiency heat exchangers in terms of energy capture and storage. Two Borehole Thermal Energy Storage (BTE) areas(low temperature range (30-50C) and medium (50-80C) will support a energy cascading concept where energy will be sequentially used and finally stored for further use or commercialized to third parties. The methodology aspects of this projects wants to establish a framework to foster the energy commercialization of surplus energy. Living areas, symbiosis with other companies in industrial parks, sports centers... will beneficiate from cheaper energy, environmental impact reduction and social acceptance of energy intensive industrial activities. The coordination of the manufacturing and the energy recovery processes will be carried out by means of a smart methodology. A protocol definition software will deploy actions to create best practices in terms of process adjustment and operating instructions. Management concepts based on energy recovery rate as Key Process Indicator (KPI), will be integrated into the decision making mechanism of the company assuring permanent advances in this field of activity in forthcoming years.
