Application of Polyurethane Catalyst in Molded Soft Foam

- Jun 25, 2018 -

Molded high-resilience soft foam is a kind of soft foam plastic with excellent performance. Due to its light weight, softness, high rebound and high degree of hand comfort, it is widely used in automobiles, furniture, etc. In industries related to daily life. With the continuous improvement of people’s living standards and the increasing emphasis on environmental protection, the market has become increasingly demanding in terms of quality, odor, and sporadicity in molding high-rebound foam. The following points are now high in molding heights. The main technical challenges that bomb foam manufacturers face.

Polyurethane catalyst technology challenge

(1) Foam odor and volatile organic compounds (VOC) In order to reduce the impact of polyurethane foam on people and the environment, and to ensure the safety of people in the production and use of polyurethane foam products, major automotive OEMs have established strict standards.

(2) Quick release

In recent years, the rapid development of China's polyurethane industry, especially in the automotive industry, has grown rapidly at a rate far higher than the annual growth rate of China's GDP. For automotive interior parts manufacturers, how to use existing production conditions to increase productivity through quick demoulding , To reduce scrap rate and improve product quality is an economically viable solution.

With the continuous improvement of people's living standards, the demand for high-quality products and the emphasis on green environmental protection, polyurethane foam has been rapidly developing toward higher quality, more safety and environmental protection. Air Products' Dabco series of amine catalysts and surfactants and Polycat series amine catalysts are designed to help molded foam manufacturers deal with low odors, low emissions, low fogging, more safety, environmental protection, and rapid mold release. Challenges, help them gradually improve product quality, increase their market competitiveness in the increasingly fierce market competition.
