Dow Reichhold Selects Name For New Technology

Research Triangle Park, N.C.-based
Dow Reichhold Specialty Latex LLC has chosen PolySâf™ Antimicrobial Polymers as the name for its
technology platform, used to produce emulsion polymers offering a variety of tailor-made
antimicrobial functionalities.

“The PolySâf name references the tunable polymer platform, the sustainable antimicrobial
feature through the use of the acronym SAF, and the safety component provided by antimicrobial
protection in general,” said Douglas Johnson, global marketing manager.

“Our technology includes polymers that have inherent antimicrobial properties,” Johnson
said. “In addition, we can provide an emulsion polymer that integrates commonly used active
ingredients into an end-use product.”
