While eyes from around the world are glued to athletes and the final of the 2014 FIFA World Cup™, another key player has emerged to contribute significantly to the event’s success: science. Dow technology solutions were used in 10 out of the 12 stadiums in Brazil that have hosted this year’s international soccer games, helping to create a cost-effective, more sustainable FIFA World Cup.
For fans and players, major innovations created a more enjoyable 2014 FIFA World Cup™ experience. Waterproofing materials provided efficient coverage against leaks and moisture in ramps, bleachers, stairs and ceilings, helping to keep fans dry. Odor-neutralizing technology for sports uniforms helped players stay fresher for longer, and encouraged the post-match tradition of exchanging uniforms. Easy-to-clean floors and insulated structural panels helped create a more durable and weather-resistant atmosphere to enhance fan and player comfort while decreasing energy consumption.
