Low odor cold cast PU systems for concrete forming applications
| Subj: Press-releses
Specialty chemicals company LANXESS will attend World Of Concrete in Las Vegas, Nevada this year. Bruno Motta, North American Sales Director, and Tyler Ryan, Global R&D Chemist, will be onsite to promote new urethane systems for concrete forming applications.
LANXESS Urethane Systems has developed a range of room temperature curable polyurethane systems that offer outstanding technical performance, exceptional ease of processability, and are low odor. All the casting and curing is undertaken at room temperature, thereby optimizing energy costs and the ecological footprint.
Improved industrial hygiene
Sustainability: reduced energy consumption
Adiprene LF prepolymers and Vibracure curatives are low viscosity at room temperature which means no heating is required to process the materials. Since these systems fully cure at room temperature, no ovens, high temperatures, or hot molds are necessary. This directly improves operations by reducing energy costs and worker safety as well as reduces the carbon footprint.
Room temperature processing and performance
These cold cast systems are designed with part A and B as simple whole number mixing ratios. These systems are robust, moisture tolerant, and can be either hand-mixed or machine-mixed with low viscosity and long open work times at room temperature, enabling the casting of complex designs ideal for pattern matching applications.
