DOW AUTOMOTIVE: Cavity Sealing Material
This company, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Co., introduced a new cavity sealing solution made with 25% renewable-based materials at the recent Applied Market Information Bioplastics Compounding and Processing Conference in Miami, FL. BETAFOAM™ Renue is a two-part polyurethane rigid foam system that reportedly enhances sustainability while offering the performance advantages of BETAFOAM made with low-emission MDI. Currently used on more than 30 vehicles now in production, BETAFOAM reportedly offers performance and processing advantages over traditional baffles.
The material is typically used to seal vehicle cavities to provide advantages in managing noise, vibration and harshness. In addition, it can offer improved acoustical performance of 1-5 decibels.
