FoamPartner has developed a new range of low-emission flexible polyurethane foams for automotive interiors. Heribert Perler and Henri Mispreuve explain what the foams can do to meet tighter regulations.
Earlier this year, Albrecht Baumer launched Sophie, a modular production control and data management system for polyurethane slabstock processing. The system offers much more, though – and could be a jumping off point for companies wanting to raise quality, and improve efficiency as well as understanding their processes.
Huntsman has developed a new range of hot castable polyurethane elastomer formulations. The MDI-based products are designed to replace NDI grades
The quality of air inside buildings, cars and other enclosed spaces is becoming important, but current methods give very variable results when emission tests for volatiles are carried out on polyurethane samples. Scientists at The Dow Chemical Company have developed a process that is designed to minimise the variability
Polyurethane foam is the major source of VOCs and odour in the automotive cockpit. Michael Holzwarth of design and development specialist imat-uve explains why it can be hard to change the smell of the foam
