Dow’s involvement in each Games spans from field-of-play technologies – such as the innovative synthetic turf system for the Rio 2016 hockey pitches and the DOWTHERMTM Heat Transfer Fluids that maintained ice surface temperatures for the PyeongChang 2018 skating rinks – to venue construction, energy-efficiency, transportation and extended infrastructure, creating better experiences for athletes and fans alike.
