Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia -- Maskimi Polyol Sdn Bhd will be showing the urethane world its palm-oil-based natural oil polyols (NOPs), for use in both rigid and flexible foam, at the PU China 2010 exhibition, to be held 26-28 May, in Shenzhen, China.
Maskimi says its NOP PK 317 has been used in rigid systems in the PU market for the past eight years and can replace up to 70 percent of the petroleum polyol in a formulation.
The Malaysian-based company also makes PKF 3000 and PKF 5000 NOPs which it says have been used in flexible systems in the PU market for over a year. These can replace up to 30 percent of the petroleum polyols in a flexible foam formulation.
Set up in 1997, Maskimi Polyol is a subsidiary of Bina Puri Holdings Berhad, primarily manufacturing NOPs and NOP-based polyurethane systems. The company invested RM 12 million ($4 million) in the Selangor Darul Ehsan plant, which has the capacity to produce 60 tonnes of NOP daily.
