Dow to introduce non-mercury catalyzed PUR elastomer products

March 03/2012

(specialchem4adhesives) -- Dow Formulated Systems, a business unit of The Dow Chemical Company, has announced plans to launch a new line of HYPERLAST and DIPRANE non-mercury catalyzed polyurethane elastomer products.

Dow is committed to continually create today's and tomorrow's solutions for helping make the world safer, healthier, cleaner and more sustainable for all of us. Within the Engineering Elastomers business this is as important as ever.

There is public concern with mercury and phenylmercury substances and under the REACH Regulation (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006): there is a proposal to restrict five phenylmercury substances. Dow has worked to remove the use of organo mercury catalysts from its polyurethane elastomer products.

Dow is rolling out a product range that helps the polyurethane processor benefit from knowledge that the materials in use are not impacted by REACH regulation and, therefore, will have supply longevity.

The well-established one-pack elastomer MONOTHANE Polyurethane Systems range has been reformulated to provide enhanced, REACH-compliant material. Customers have endorsed the product and value the brand for its quality consistent performance in process and use.
