LSR and Hardcoats for the mobility
At K 2022, Momentive Performance Materials will focus on the requirements of modern mobility concepts and will present corresponding developments from the areas of Liquid Silicone Rubbers (LSR) and Hardcoats at Booth B15 in Hall 6. These include flame-retardant LSRs grades for the cost-efficient production of hard-soft composites, and grades that crosslink at low temperature, thus facilitating the production of thick-walled parts. In the Hardcoats area, the focus is on innovative scratch and weather-resistant coatings that can be applied with high accuracy and cost-effectiveness to virtually any shaped plastic part for automotive interior and exterior applications.
European Polyurethane Foam Industry
Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (“Momentive”), today announced it will invest $13 million for the expansion of its existing Termoli (Italy) plant to create a state-of-the-art manufacturing hub for its Niax™ polyurethane additives. The site, which currently produces high performance additives for rigid foam applications among other silicone-based products, will undergo a comprehensive technology upgrade to expand services to the EU slabstock foam industry.
