The Worldwide Olympic Partner and Official Chemistry company of the Games, Dow is on track and going all out in its own race to ensure the Olympic Stadium, Tokyo Aquatics Centre, Ariake Arena, Ariake Gymnastics Centre, and other Olympic venues will be sealed, coated, insulated and protected by the time the world’s best athletes go for gold in the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

In preparing venues for next year’s games, the company has put its products to work in finding the right solutions to building new and temporary arenas, as well as retrofitting sporting venues which date back 55 years to the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games.

An array of Dow products are being used in the refitting and construction processes including polyurethane sealants which have be used to fill the gaps between and around window frames, doors and walls to help control the temperature levels in the Olympic sports venues.
