At Foam Expo Europe, Huntsman TPU will showcase wide range of innovative polyurethane-based foam solutions. The innovations will focus specifically on mobility, comfort and construction applications.

ACOUSTIFLEX® S NBR - A Lightweight Absorber (LWA)

For the mobility industry, Huntsman offers 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.

ACOUSTIFLEX® S NBR polyurethane foam

Huntsman launched ACOUSTIFLEX® S NBR polyurethane foam system - a lightweight absorber (LWA), semi-rigid foam, designed for acoustic applications in engine and trunk compartments. The new formulation is thermoformable, boasting superior acoustics absorption and offering greater flexibility to meet design needs.

Foam Solutions for Automotive Design

Johan Peters, Account Manager Acoustics & NVH Global, will be talking about noise vibration harshness (NVH), thermal management and acoustic insulation requirements in electrical vehicles, and the benefits polyurethane-based foamed materials can bring to this aspect of automotive design.


RUBIFLEX® Cocoon Flexible Foam System for Comfort Applications

In comfort applications, Huntsman’s RUBIFLEX® Cocoon flexible foam system is used to make mattresses, pillows and cushion pads with just the right blend of properties. Optimizing pressure distribution, RUBIFLEX® Cocoon flexible foam maximizes comfort by ensuring the body is evenly cradled.

The foam offers better breathability with its open cell structure, transports heat away from the body’s surface. It also dissipates moisture quickly and efficiently, reducing humidity build up. In addition, it is easy to roll, vacuum pack, store and transport.

DaltoPIR® XHFR Insulation Foam for Construction Industry

For the construction industry, Huntsman has developed a new fire-rated PIR-based insulation foam product for manufacturing of composite panels.

DaltoPIR® XHFR insulation system combines thermal properties with very good fire and smoke properties, without compromising processing performance or durability. It also helps panel producers in achieving better panel planarity and quicker line speeds by enabling more consistent processing. The foam also has very low friability.

Huntsman’s DaltoPIR® insulation system was added to the Specification Tested listing as an identified component in the FM Approval guide. This new certification will allow panel manufacturers to benefit from a faster FM approval procedure for their finished products.

You can visit Huntsman at Stand 704 in Hall 10.
