Fiber Reinforced Concrete Cement - Product Improvement Solutions

Collaborate with Dow Corning

We offer proven products, alternative options and materials tailored to your
requirements, including:

  • Hydrophobic admixtures that can reduce water absorption and provide integral protection in the final product, eliminating the need for a post-treatment
  • Post-treatment sealers or water repellents that give you a variety of application options and improve the water resistance of fiber reinforced cement products without negatively impacting post-coating adhesion

In addition to water repellent chemicals, Dow Corning offers collaborative support, including application knowledge and advice on the effective use of silicone chemistry, to help you improve both your manufacturing process and the performance of the products you market.

Let's work together to develop the next generation of fiber reinforced cement products.
