The Woodlands, Texas - Huntsman Corp.'s polyurethane division is continuing its support of the European Diisocyanate and Polyol Producers Association's (ISOPA) 'Walk the Talk' product stewardship programme by appointing PUR Systems GmbH as a new ambassador for the scheme.
Huntsman has trained over 80 companies to handle MDI-based (methylene diphenyl diisocyante) materials in a "safe and responsible way." a 21 Oct Huntsman statement said.
PUR Systems, a joint venture systems house acquired by Huntsman in Nov 2008, will also be "advocating best practice in the safe management of isocyanates to its customers," in its role as ambassador, Huntsman added.
PUR Systems is now actively marketing the scheme to its own small and medium sized rigid polyurethane customers and identifying three organisations to undergo immediate formal training. as well as producing MDI safety panels for key customers to display in the workplace. (RD)
