BASF: Isocyanate (9/30/09)

BASF Corp. has announced the availability of Lupranate 280 Isocyanate for MDI-based foam.  The resulting foams provide excellent quality and performance, and have intrinsic fire-retardant qualities.

“Lupranate 280 Isocyanate is unique because it provides the manufacturer a high-quality foam that passes California Technical Bulletin 117* without the addition of separate flame retardants,” said John Maloney, business manager, Polyurethanes Division at BASF.  ”In addition, Lupranate 280 is significantly slower to discolor than foams with added fire retardants.”

Manufacturing using Lupranate 280 is compatible with much of today's existing equipment, processes and production conditions.

BASF Corp. is a Diamond Sponsor of the 2009 CPI Polyurethane Technical Conference and will introduce Lupranate 280 Isocyanate at this event, which will take place Oct. 5-8 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Fort Washington, MD.

*This numerical flame spread rating, as in other tests of flammability, is not intended to reflect hazards presented by this or any other material under actual fire conditions.
