CPI 2012 - Product highlights

During the upcoming CPI 2012 in Atlanta, GA we will highlight the following products:

Rigid Foam

Additives for PIR Systems

TEGOSTAB® B 84506 - Potent surfactant, especially excellent for use in cyclo/iso-pentane systems at lowered surfactant usage levels

TEGOSTAB® B 84504 – Designed for use at lower surfactant levels and provides an excellent combination of Pentane emulsification and liquid lay down

GORAPUR® CL 114 W – a unique external water based release agent for CLBS (continuous laminated board stocks systems) processing.

Flexible Foam

TEGOSTAB® B 8155 - a new FR surfactant with medium activity for the full density range of conventional flexible slabstock foam. It provides excellent processing latitude and is well suited for CAL 117, MVSS 302 as well as BS 5852 Crib V formulations.

ORTEGOL® HPH 1 & ORTEGOL® HPH 2 - new additives to enhance the hydrophilicity of foam. These are relevant for all applications where water needs to penetrate into the flexible foam structure.

Ester Foam

TEGOSTAB® B 8383 - our latest stabilizer for FR Ester Foam. It provides good stabilization, fine cell structure in low densities and broad processing latitude. It is suitable for flame lamination and all other kinds of ester foam applications. Additionally it has low VOC properties and is easily compatible with die cutting additives.

Molded Foam

Improved Comfort

TEGOSTAB® B 8742 LF 2 – a silicone surfactant that has been proven to reduce transmissivity (A/A0) of vibration through HR TDI or TM20 seating foam and in that way improving passenger dynamic comfort. Easy foam crushability and wide processing latitude are maintained while meeting low VOC requirements.

Low VOC requirements

TEGOSTAB® B 8736 LF 2 – a silicone surfactant for TDI/TM20 HR Moulded Foam that offers a wide processing latitude, provides excellent cell regulation, a subsurface structure free of voids, open cell structure (i.e. easy-to-crush foam) and meets extra low VOC standards.

TEGOSTAB® B 8745 LF 2 - the newly developed silicone surfactant for MDI HR Moulded Foam that significantly enhances the MDI-system miscibility and fulfils extra low VOC needs.
