Performance is a key enabler of Dow technologies for the production of lighter 
weight, recyclable and re-usable plastics. Aligned with the theme, "Together, 
We Deliver More," products at Chinaplas will address sustainability trends in 
food and specialty packaging, industrial packaging, health and hygiene 
products, transportation, infrastructure and more. Highlights include:

- Tenter Frame Biaxially Oriented Polyethylene (TF-BOPE) Film. ( 
Recognized by the industry with a 2018 Ringier Technology Innovation Award, 
TF-BOPE film is a revolutionary alternative to traditional polyethylene (PE) 
film that takes the complexity out of recycling multi-layer packaging. TF-BOPE 
not only offers twice the impact resistance of traditional PE, and almost three 
times more puncture resistant, but also provides converters and brand-owners 
with an economical and functional alternative to expensive substrates, like 

- AGILITY(TM) EC Performance LDPE Resins. 
( Specifically designed to 
allow for high coating speed at low gauges, AGILITY(TM) Resins offer remarkable 
adhesion, sealing and optical properties. They can be used in either single or 
co-extruded structures such as décor, lamination and sealant layers in a 
variety of flexible food, home and personal care packaging applications. 

- Enhanced Expanded Polyethylene (EPE) Foam. ( 
) Ideal for down gauging, Dow EPE Foam helps ecommerce providers save on space 
and transportation costs while lowering energy consumption and reducing the 
amount of packaging diverted to landfills. In 2017, Dow EPE Foam was named an 
Innovation Technology Award winner at the inaugural China E-Commerce Packaging 
Pioneer Awards. 

- INNATE(TM) Precision Packaging Resins. 
( Offering excellent 
stiffness, toughness and processability, films made of INNATE(TM) Precision 
Packaging Resins reduce food and product waste from drop failures, leakage and 
general wear-and-tear in stand-up pouches, liquid container liners and 
heavy-duty laminates. 

- ProtectionPlus ( A collaboration 
with Newton Lab, this partnership is aimed at improving transportation safety 
in Asia through optimizing packaging on pallets and assisting value chain 
partners in making sure pallet packaging is safe, secure and more sustainable. 

- Health & Hygiene: Fiber-grade resins improve comfort and fit for baby 
diapers, feminine hygiene and adult incontinence products through 
ultra-softness and cloth-like feel. 

- Adhesives: Solventless and water-based adhesives for flexible packaging help 
converters and manufacturers address safety and sustainability, and comply with 
increasingly stringent laws and regulations regarding VOC emissions. 

- Transportation: Thermoplastic olefin (TPO) and ethylene propylene diene 
terpolymer (EPDM) technologies help automotive manufacturers meet industry 
demand for light weighting, durability, safety and improved aesthetics. 

- Footwear: Innovative ethylene copolymers and olefin block copolymers for 
footwear midsoles to enhance performance, automation, sustainability and 

- Infrastructure: A broad product line of high performance ethylene copolymers 
and advanced elastomers deliver unique functionality across diverse 
infrastructure markets to deliver safer, stronger, more durable and efficient 

- Photovoltaics (PV): Advanced Polyolefin Elastomers (POE) improve power output 
and performance of PV modules through POE-based encapsulant films that reduce 
cost and help safeguard energy generation over the lifetime of a PV system. 

- Wire & Cable: Setting industry standards for efficiency across power and 
telecommunications, polymeric compounds help construct reliable, long-lasting 
wires, cables and cable accessories.
