Molded Foam Solutions

Product Announcement from Dow Polyurethanes


See below for our variety of options for molded foam 

ISONATE™ 143L

A unique combination of high modified MDI content, available carbodiimide, and liquid state allows ease of handling, ease of processing and maintenance of high physical properties under strenuous wear and environmental conditions

PAPI™ 901

Designed for uses where high viscosity is required for processing polyisocyanurate foams.

PAPI™ 94

Offers delayed gel times, which result in better flow into molds for semi-flexible and integral skin foams.

SPECFLEX™ NC 630

Excellent stability and processing latitude with a wide variety of low or high pressure molding

machines. Can be used alone or with SPECFLEX NC 701 to achieve a wide range of hardnesses with excellent resiliency and physical properties.

SPECFLEX™ NC 701

Designed for use in the manufacture of high resilience flexible molded foam, high-comfort flexible foam and semi-flexible molded foam. Can be used to produce high-load-bearing foams over a wide density range

VORANOL™ 4053

Excellent cell opening at low levels (0.5 - 5.0 php) with no sacrifice in foam hardness

VORANOL™ 4701

Well-suited for high resilience, flexible molded foams. May be made utilizing all TDI, TDI/MDI, or MDI isocyanate compositions and can be used for a broad range of semi-flexible molded foam applications.

VORANOL™ CP 6001

Can be processed utilizing standard state-of-the-art molding equipment. Can be used in the production of semi-rigid integral skin foams, as well as in the production of cold-cure molded foams and high resilience molded foam.

VORANOL™ VORACTIV™ 6340

Well suited for high resilience, flexible molded foams. May be made utilizing TDI, TDI/MDI blends, or all-MDI isocyanate compositions and can be used in a broad range of semi-flexible molded foam applications and in conjunction with copolymer polyols such as SPECFLEX™ NC 701 Polyol to make high-load-bearing and dual hardness foams. VORANOL™ VORACTIV™ 6340 is more reactive than traditional polyols and will allow for a substantial reduction in catalyst levels.

VORANATE™ T-80

Both Type I and Type II products are well suited for use in high-resilience molding, TDI molding, formulating (systems) and flexible slabstock applications. TDI (Type I) may be used in automotive seating, furniture cushioning, mattress cushioning and specialty foams applications.
