Danbury, Connecticut – Addivant has launched a new liquid antioxidant for the polyurethane industry. Naugard Foamplus LE was developed, the company said, to assist automotive manufacturers in meeting ever-stricter rules on vehicle indoor air quality.
The products, unveiled during the Chinaplas 2017 exhibition in Guangzhou, China, were designed to be inherently more thermally stable than existing alternatives, offering scorch protection and polyol stability. They also have a better viscosity profile, giving improved handling, and are less volatile than the industry benchmarks at high foaming temperatures. The result is a reduction in VOC and FOG emissions of more than 90%, Adivant said.
