Noida, Delhi –LANXESS, the global specialty chemicals company, is showcasing its wide-ranging product portfolio which meets virtually all the polyurethane industry’s requirements, at PU Tech 2017 being held during 08 to 10 March 2017, at the India Expo Center, Greater Noida, New Delhi. The comprehensive product range includes flame retardants, plasticizers, crosslinking agents, catalysts and hydrolysis stabilizer for rigid and flexible foams, coatings, elastomers, sealants and adhesives.
The focus will be on products such as Stabaxol® (hydrolysis stabilizers), Addonyl® (additives and catalysts for cast nylon) along with Addocat® catalysts, Addolink® crosslinkers and Addovate® stabilizers (for the production of polyurethane flexible foams).
The Disflamoll® 51092 grade was primarily developed for PU flexible foam and elastomers while Levagard® TP LXS 51114 is specifically suitable for flexible foam. Both flame retardants can be used in polyester as well as in polyether flexible foams. Foams manufactured using Levagard® TP LXS 51114 even meet the German Association of the Automotive Industry's strict VDA 278 standard for the characterization of non-metallic materials in cars.
The established reactive flame retardant Levagard® 4090 N is now available in improved quality owing to process optimizations. The lower acid number and water content ensure better processability, especially in the manufacture of rigid polyurethane foams.
LANXESS will also be exhibiting its phthalate-free plasticizers from the Mesamoll® range for the first time at PUTECH. They are ideal for the production of PU sealants or for use as cleaning agents for polyurethane processing equipment.
