Next Generation Surfactant for Increased Block Yield and Broad Processing Latitude for Low Emission Slabstock Foam

by Celso Toyoshima, Technical Application Manager, Evonik

  • Introduction of the development of a new low VOC silicone surfactant optimized to increase the gas yield of conventional flexible slabstock foam.

  • Data from lab studies and machine trials that show reduced top-to-bottom density spreads and increased block heights when using this new surfactant in both discontinuous (cylinder and box) as well as continuous block foam processes.

  • How flexible foam manufacturers will be able to improve their chemical conversion efficiencies and produce foam at a lower cost by unit volume.
