Irgastab® PUR 70

Anti-scorch package Irgastab® PUR 70 for polyol and PU foams

Meeting emissions requirements for the automotive industry

Anti-scorch systems are synergistic combination of additives needed to prevent thermo-oxidative degradation of Polyol and PUR foams. Anti-scorch synergistic packages provide superior scorch protection than single antioxidants. The proper anti-scorch loading must be determined to ensure the required scorch protection, whereas the composition (amine-based, low-amine or amine-free) is key to meet foam end application requirements. Irgastab® PUR 70 is a novel anti-scorch additive that provides extremely low emissions and reduces significantly the aldehyde emissions in Polyol and PUR foams. This addresses the increasing challenge to meet emissions requirements of the automotive industry as well as in the furniture and bedding industry. Due to its outstanding gas fading resistance and light-induced discoloration Irgastab® PUR 70 can be used in applications outside automotive where foam whiteness is key.
