HOUSTON, Texas – Huntsman Corporation’s (NYSE: HUN) Polyurethanes division has become the first U.S. manufacturer to receive the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Environment certification for one of its polyols -- TEROL® 563 modified aromatic polyester polyol.
TEROL® 563 polyol is primarily used in polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation applications. When properly formulated and processed, insulation panels produced with TEROL 563 can pass the Factory Mutual 4450 Calorimeter and ASTM E-84 Tunnel tests.
The UL certification demonstrates that Huntsman’s TEROL Performance Polyols business possesses the technological expertise and logistics to provide an independent, third-party certified range of recycled content and renewable content polyols. Huntsman’s aromatic polyester polyols incorporate both pre-consumer and post-consumer recycled content allowing customers to design their insulation products with confidence and meet preferred purchasing protocols.
Huntsman retained the services of UL Environment to certify its pre-consumer recycled, post-consumer recycled and renewable resource content claims. UL verified the claims by reviewing Huntsman’s manufacturing practices and raw materials sources.
“Receiving the UL Environment certification illustrates Huntsman’s continued commitment to environmental excellence and providing high-quality, sustainable insulation products to our customers,” said Les Yamato, Business Manager, TEROL Polyols, Huntsman Polyurethanes. “We strive to be an industry leader in sustainability, and the UL Environment certification represents another step toward that goal.”
Huntsman offers one of the broadest ranges of aromatic polyester polyols for rigid foam appl
ications, with hydroxyl values ranging from 120 to 350. Additionally, its customized polyol solutions can meet the most demanding insulation applications.
