GREAT STUFF Awarded Polyurethane Innovation Award
The Alliance for the Polyurethanes Industry (API) has awarded its first-ever Polyurethane Innovation Award to GREAT STUFF Window & Door insulating foam sealant, manufactured by The Dow Chemical Company. The award was given at a recent meeting of the Polyurethanes 2005 Technical Conference and Trade Fair in Houston.
"Out of all of the entries we received this year, the judges and conferees agreed that Dow's stood out in its understanding and use of polyurethane technology to produce a superior end-use product," said API executive director Dick Mericle.
GREAT STUFF Window & Door was designed exclusively for filling the rough opening gap around windows and doors. Its low-pressure formula expands without exerting pressure, and is proven not to buckle or bow window or doorframes, according to the company.
"It's a great honor to be recognized by such a distinguished organization," said Jeff Fancher, global brand manager for foam sealants at Dow. "Our GREAT STUFF product line is all about making things easier for the consumer and helping them to save energy dollars by air-sealing their homes."
GREAT STUFF Window & Door was among three finalists selected by API leadership. Finalists submitted both a poster and the end use product, which were displayed in the API trade show booth at the meeting. The GREAT STUFF poster, with physical foam samples, gave meeting attendees a chance to "feel the difference," inviting them to compare traditional rigid single-component polyurethane foam with the new flexible Window & Door product. Attendees then voted on the three and selected GREAT STUFF as the winner.
