LANXESS will be showcasing its premium products for the polyurethane industry at UTECH Europe 2018 from May 29 to 31.

Additives: New Flame Retardants and Hydrolysis Stabilizers

UTECH Europe

Urethane Systems shares the stand at UTECH Europe with the LANXESS Additives business unit. The innovative halogen-free flame retardants are based, among other things, on a newly developed phosphorus chemistry.

One product example are the phosphate esters of the Disflamoll and Reofos series, which have proven themselves, for example, in rigid and flexible foam applications based on polyurethane as well as in coatings, adhesives and sealants. They combine plasticizing with flame retardant properties.

The Additives business unit also introduces Stabaxol L, the first product in a new range of low-emission hydrolysis stabilizers. It is particularly suitable for polyester/polylactone polyols, thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU) and other PU elastomers. The product is liquid and of low-viscosity at room temperature – therefore it is easy to dose and process without prior heating.

The new Urethane Systems business unit will be represented at the conference for the first time. “We want to use this major event in the global polyurethane industry primarily to strengthen our position as a customer-focused urethane systems provider. The focus is on our broad range of prepolymers with very low free isocyanate content. This technology opens up new opportunities for our customers, especially in terms of performance and safety,” explains Dr. Markus Eckert, Head of Urethane Systems. Other key topics include material alternatives to MbOCA-cured cast systems and blocked systems for a range of cast and coating applications.

Solutions for all Types of Polyurethanes


LANXESS’s Additives business unit offers solutions for all types of polyurethanes. The product innovations presented at UTECH Europe include flame retardants, plasticizers, crosslinkers, catalysts and hydrolysis stabilizers.

The focus there is on new flame retardant solutions from the Levagard, Disflamoll and Reofos product ranges, which have proven themselves in rigid and flexible foam applications based on polyurethane. The business unit also introduces Stabaxol L, the first product in a new range of low-emission hydrolysis stabilizers.

“Our new oligomeric flame retardant solutions can help address the increasing requirements for flexible foams and meet our customers’ demands for low fogging and low emission additives,” explains Dr. Heiko Tebbe, Manager Application Technology Polymer Additives at the LANXESS Additives business unit.

Global Urethane Systems Provider


Urethane Systems was formed following the acquisition of Chemtura by LANXESS. Eckert: “We see ourselves as a systems provider to the global polyurethane industry. Our offering includes comprehensive systems for cast elastomers, coatings, adhesives and sealants.” The business unit is one of the world’s leading suppliers of conventional and low free prepolymers and special aqueous polyurethane dispersions (PUDs). “A particular focus is placed on solvent- and monomer-free systems. For example, we have developed a new low free MDI prepolymer specifically for adhesives and sealants with isocyanate content of less than 0.1 percent,” Eckert explains.
