MDI-free foams and MDI-free foams with a silane base

MDI-reduced foams

A isocyanate-reduced foam is a foam whose concentration of the reactive MDI (= Methylene diphenyldiisocyanate = free isocyanates) has been reduced. These foams are divided into two groups:

A) < 1% monomer content:
The level of free MDI in these foams has been reduced to a value below 1 %.

B) < 0.1% monomer content:
The level of free MDI in these foams has been reduced to a value of < 0.1 %.

MDI-free foams with a silane base

These are assembly foams that have a polyurethane structure but no more free isocyanate groups because they were turned into a non-reactive urethane structure in a previous chemical process. The foam hardening process is based on reaction-capable silane groups that, once the foam has left the can, react with the ambient moisture leading to the interconnection and therefore the hardening of the applied PU foam.
