MDI free one component foams: ready for take-off or still a niche product?
MDI-based polyurethane one component foams (OCF) represent by far the majority of currently produced moisture-curing foams dispensed from pressurised containers. At the same time new legislation and restrictions are placed on products containing MDI. This naturally leads to a question: are there MDI-free solutions available?
This presentation will discuss some of the alternatives to MDI-based OCF. A novel technology for one-component foams based on a silanized polyol will be presented. Its technical performance and environmental impact will be discussed and compared to the conventional OCF products.
