Dow Building and Construction, a business group of The Dow Chemical Company, has been recognized for its liquid-applied flashing product designed to provide advanced moisture- and air-sealing protection to commercial buildings.

LIQUIDARMOR CM Flashing and Sealant received a gold 2016 Edison Award in the Energy and Sustainability category.

The water-based product was first introduced in 2014. It is suitable for use on foam boards, steel studs, concrete masonry units, tapes, wood buck and wraps.

“Innovation is the lifeblood of our company and a vital pillar in our growth strategy,” said A.N. Sreeram, senior VP and chief technology officer for Dow. “This Edison Award is evidence that our world-class team of scientists and engineers around the world continue to fuel our innovation pipeline with solutions like LIQUIDARMOR CM Flashing and Sealant—bringing sustainable and high performing solutions that meet customer needs.”

Billed as an alternative to flashing tape, the product is engineered to form a tight, seamless barrier along the rough openings of windows and doors when used with Dow's commercial wall assemblies, the company says. The product can be either spray or brush applied.

About the Awards

Selected from hundreds of finalists, the winners were announced during an Edison Awards Gala, held April 21 in New York City.

The Edison Awards, named after American-born inventor and businessman Thomas Alva Edison, honor excellence in new product and service development, marketing, human-centered design and innovation.

Throughout his life Edison was awarded 1,093 U.S. patents for market-disrupting technologies such as the electric light bulb and phonograph.
