Measuring The Challenge And Making A Difference

The Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, taking place February 7-23 in Russia’s Black Sea resort, will count on technologies and innovations from The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW), Worldwide Olympic Partner and The Official Chemistry Company of the Olympic Games, on all fronts. From competition venues to city infrastructure, from re-engineered team equipment to technologies that mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, Dow enters its 40 th year in Russia proud to play a crucial role to help enable the success of the first Olympic Winter Games in the country’s history.

“Dow’s contributions as Worldwide Olympic Partner are unique and unmatched. Through our expertise, reach and innovation, we are in a privileged position to help host territories with their most challenging needs, delivering more sustainable and higher-performing Games,” said George Hamilton, vice president, Dow Olympic Operations. “Our solutions and technologies help improve the Olympic experience for host territories, athletes and fans everywhere - on the field of play and in our daily lives.”

Competition venues and city infrastructure

Once again, solutions from Dow are playing a key role to enable higher-performing Olympic Games: the Company’s products and technologies will be present in all competition venues of the Coastal Cluster’s Olympic Park (the hockey, speed skating, figure skating and curling arenas, and the Olympic Stadium – stage of opening and closing ceremonies) as well as two of the five competition venues in the Mountain Cluster (sliding and ski jumping centers).

Built to be the most iconic venue of the Sochi 2014 Games, the Bolshoy Ice Dome will rely on DOWCAL™ Heat Transfer Fluids to create and maintain the high-performance ice surface where the world’s most prestigious hockey players will clash for Olympic glory. Other Dow solutions incorporated throughout the Bolshoy, from floor to ceiling, include WALOCEL™ products (enhancing concrete mixture for the flooring), industrial coatings (providing durability and protection from corrosion for metal structural components), ENDURANCE™ family of semiconductive and insulation materials (ensuring reliability and long service life to power cables) and SPECFLEX™ Polyurethane Systems (contributing to aesthetics, comfort and durability of the seats for VIP guests).
