Polyurethane experts from Huntsman are taking part in Foam Expo Europe this September - Europe’s largest trade fair and conference for the technical foam manufacturing supply chain. At the exhibition, Huntsman will highlight the wide range of innovative polyurethane-based foam solutions it provides, focusing specifically on mobility, comfort and construction applications.
For the mobility industry, Huntsman is showing a variety of bio-based foam technologies. Compatible with existing foaming production installations, these bio-based technologies and pre-polymers can help automotive manufacturers achieve a 9% level of bio-based content - according to ASTM-D6866-12.
These products include the company’s ACOUSTIFLEX® HR BIO bio-based, high resiliency polyurethane flexible foam technology that is used as lightweight insulation for closed-pour and open-pour acoustical applications such as carpet inlays, dash insulations and stuffer pads. It is also available as a semi-rigid foam for elastomeric, heavy-layer noise barriers such as wheelhouse, transmission tunnel and pillar cavity fill insulators; RUBIFLEX® HR BIO bio-based, high resiliency polyurethane flexible foam technology for standard moulded seat pad applications with robust processing requirements. It also finds application in head restraints, armrests and centre consoles; RUBIFLEX® H BIO bio-based, polyurethane semi-flexible foam technology delivers support for moulded cut-and-sew head restraint, armrest and console applications with robust processing requirements; and the company’s RUBITRIM® SR BIO bio-based, polyurethane semi-rigid foam technology used to deliver a soft touch in a variety of transportation-related moulded trim applications including instrument panels and door panels.
Huntsman will also be showcasing a range of non-bio foam solutions developed for mobility applications, as well as foam solutions designed for comfort applications and for use in the construction industry.
