Dow Corning has introduced a interactive web-based project management system that enables contractors, designers, and architects to access a global network of building materials experts who together provide fast, efficient service.
"The Dow Corning COOL (COnstruction OnLine) website is one of several innovations we are implementing to better integrate our global support services and ensure that every interaction builders have with us is a positive one," said Ron Fillmore, Vice President, Construction Industry, Dow Corning.
"COOL helps contractors save time, save money, and stay on the fast track to success by enabling faster, more efficient service than ever before from Dow Corning's sales and technical support team."

By registering at the COOL website, members can quickly and easily request construction services such as print reviews, sample tests, and warranties online; receive real-time progress reports; get recommendation letters and documentation sent directly to them and their partners; and ask questions, get answers, and access information critical to the success of their project 24/7.
"A successful project requires the collective efforts of the design and construction industries to share best practices and new ideas," Fillmore said.
"Expediting service requests and working more collaboratively with your Dow Corning team through COOL is one way to avoid costly design, material and application errors."
