Detroit, Michigan -- Woodbridge Group said it has developed a new lower volatile organic (VOC) emission polyurethane formulation for automotive interior components, in an announcement.
Called TrimVisible LE the polyurethane formulation is designed "to meet the most stringent VOC specifications," said Woodbridge.
The firm adds that the polyurethane "innovation provides best-in-class VOC reductions while its neutral colour improves the appearance of apertures in a trimmed seat assembly.
Dave Miller, senior vice president, The Woodbridge Group, said at the North American International Auto Show in mid January that the polyurethane foam meets "extremely low VOC test requirements, with up to 80% reductions of some compounds without compromising seat cushioning performance. Miller added that the tests had been carried out by "an independent accredited laboratory.”
