Huntsman Launches New Range of Low Emission Hardeners

06 May 2005

Huntsman Advanced Materials has developed a new range of low emission hardeners that aim to help civil engineering companies to produce products that comply with future environmental regulations.

In response to increasing environmental concerns and predicting future demand for more ‘green’ products, Huntsman has developed a new range of nonylphenol- and benzylalcohol-free hardeners. Suitable for use in conjunction with epoxy resins, they represent a novel approach to civil engineering and design issues and are the first products of their kind packaged as an integrated solution.

Currently in the sampling phase and available ahead of industry regulations on product emission values, Huntsman's hardeners are designed for use in all building protection and flooring applications that employ concrete and other mineral substrate materials.

Andreas Moser, director for Northern Europe at Huntsman Advanced Materials explains more, ""Working with customers to understand their markets and define new standards of product performance has always been one of Huntsman's strong points. Over the years this approach has enabled our team of experts to develop an unparalleled knowledge of different end-user markets and meet specific technical requirements. We are delighted to have developed this technology and look forward to championing a proactive approach to regulating product emission values in partnership with customers who would like to take ‘green’ materials to market.""

Huntsman Advanced Materials are producing a range of materials in the construction market to improve the performance of products in applications as diverse as flooring, polymer concrete, crack injection, repair mortars and building adhesives.
