Visit Huntsman at UTECH Europe 2015 in Maastricht, The Netherlands. 14 April 2015 onwards - Stand 1210

For immediate release:
16 February 2015

Everberg, BELGIUM – The Polyurethanes and Performance Products divisions of Huntsman today announced that they will be exhibiting at UTECH Europe 2015 in Maastricht, The Netherlands, from the 14 to 16 April.
 
During this year’s event, Huntsman will showcase its passion for polyurethanes and the ways in which its knowledge of this specialist chemistry is helping to enrich the lives of people worldwide.
 
Polyurethanes surround our daily lives – having a positive impact on the way we move around the planet; how comfortable we feel; our ability to save time and energy; and even the food that we eat.
 
Focusing on these four elements, products on display at Huntsman’s stand (1210) – within a special circle of innovation – will include:

  • A flexible foam to help optimize comfort in bedding, furniture and seating applications
  • A hydrophilic substrate that can be used in hydroponic greenhouses and commercial food growing environments
  • A resin to enhance the manufacture of automotive carbon fiber composite panels
  • A new polyurethane resin system that is a viable alternative to other thermoset systems used for the production of high heat stable modelling, tooling and prototyping boards
  • Polyurethane additives and catalysts to improve the performance properties of polyurethane-based systems
  • TPU food contact materials (FCM) suitable for use in harvesting and picking equipment, processing and dispensing machinery, conveyor belts and many other food and drink-related applications.

Huntsman will also demonstrate its expertise via the UTECH Europe 2015 conference program. Tony Hankins, President of the Huntsman Polyurethanes division, will deliver the conference keynote address at 10:15am on 14th April, discussing the challenges and opportunities that face the polyurethanes sector in the medium term, in both Europe and beyond.
 
Highlighting new product developments, Wim Gilis will give a presentation on the company’s new VITROX® EST tooling technology. Geert Dries will also present a paper on emissions limits for vehicle interiors – exploring how next generation polyurethane additives and catalysts are helping original equipment manufacturers comply with legislative measures.
