Trademark Guidelines for STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam

STYROFOAM™ is a registered trademark for a line of foam products manufactured exclusively by The Dow Chemical Company. We ask that you follow these guidelines when specifying STYROFOAM Brand Foam:

  • When the word "STYROFOAM" appears in copy, it should be in upper case letters and followed by the words "Brand Foam." For example:
  • The preferred method to denote that STYROFOAM Brand Foam is a trademark is to follow its first use in any document with the ™ mark, and the corresponding trademark footnote should read "®™*Trademark of The Dow Chemical Company ("Dow") or an affiliated company of Dow" For example:

®™* Trademark of The Dow Chemical Company ("Dow") or an affiliated company of Dow
  • If the format does not permit use of the trademark footnote, then a ™ mark should be used after the word "STYROFOAM" in the body copy:
  • Never use "Dow" in front of "STYROFOAM", as it implies that there are other manufacturers. Instead, state "STYROFOAM Brand Foam from Dow."
  • Never use STYROFOAM in the possessive form.
  • Because it is a registered trademark, STYROFOAM cannot be used as an adjective. It is incorrect to say "Three 1-inch STYROFOAM Brand Foam balls." Instead, use "Three 1-inch balls of STYROFOAM Brand Foam."
  • When writing step-by-step instructions, refer to our product in this manner: "Cut the ball of STYROFOAM Brand Foam in half" or, "Insert the pick in the disc of STYROFOAM Brand Foam."
  • In the material list, please list our product in this manner:
STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
  • Six 1" balls
  • Three 12" x 4" cones
  • One 12" x 1" disc
