Dow Launches New Range of Co-polymer Polyols

Horgen, Switzerland - January 08, 2018 - Dow Polyurethanes, a business division of DowDuPont Materials Science, is launching a new range of co-polymer polyols (CPPs) to address the demanding and diverse requirements of the flex foam industry. Dow is confident the four new CPPs on offer—VORALUXTM HL 500; VORALUXTM HL 510; VORALUXTM HL 515; VORALUXTM HL 525—will represent a high class for flex foam applications. The range will aim to address the requirements for low emissions found in Automotive, Bedding and Furniture sectors, having a broad processing range that will yield foam consistency and high solids content for efficient load-bearing properties.

“Dow is committed to providing exciting solutions to the PU industry. By investing in a new CPP asset we are able to offer quality products to our customers, enabling them to make quality flexible foams,” said Ricco Borella, Dow Polyurethanes EMEAI Consumer Comfort Marketing Manager.

The launch of the new range of CPPs follows a capacity expansion at the Dow plant in Terneuzen, Netherlands. This facility, now the second largest production site of Dow globally, will benefit key downstream markets like furniture and bedding, coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers, building and construction as well as automotive.
