“With the latest trends towards autonomous driving, passengers will shift their focus from driving to indulging in connectivity and other activities within their vehicles,” said Isabelle Riff, Global Marketing Leader for Leather and Textiles at Dow and one of the webinar speakers.

With this in mind, Dow has developed the new ROSILK Feel Modifier silicone additive designed to address the needs of automotive tanneries for high standards and exclusive experience of natural leather, all while aligning to the growing demands for safer materials.

This new generation of silicone additive is free from benzene, toluene, ethyl benzene, and xylenes (BTEX)*, is compliant with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Level 1 standard and maintains enhanced haptics, matting, abrasion resistance and durability.”
