Styron: Extending the Range of Sight and Sound
Color print advertisement for Styron, the trade name for Styrenic plastics historically manufactured and sold by the Dow Chemical Company for a variety of consumer applications. The advertisement features an illustrated scene of a large radio antenna attracting lightning bolts from a dark, cloudy sky. In the foreground, a man sits at a radio receiver. There is also a small inset photograph of what appear to be United States servicemen operating a radio in the field. The accompanying text notes that Styron is being used in the development of high frequency equipment used for communications. Notably, the advertisement was produced during World War II and bears the Company's wartime tagline "Dow: Chemicals Indispensable to Industry and Victory."
