Birmingham, UK - Cellular Technology Europe Ltd, a polyurethane additive distributor, has launched a new PU flame retardant, a recent company statement said.
Celltech 60 is a low-fogging, low-VOC (volatile organic compound) emission, high molecular weight, phosphate-ester flame retardant, suitable for a range of flexible slabstock polyether and moulded foams, and "a good choice for flexible foams that must pass VOC/FOG tests," Cellular said.
The company recommends that Celltech 60 is used in the production of flexible polyether foams required to resist ignition from low-intensity flame sources and said it is ideally suited to automotive and furniture applications.
"The introduction of Celltech 60 offers PU slabstock producers another option for achieving excellent flammability performance in environments where low-fogging and emissions are critical, for example automotive applications," said Cellular Technology managing director, Jürgen Hickl. (RD)
