LANXESS will open a new applications development and technical services (AD & TS) laboratory for polyurethane dispersions (PUDs) in Latina, Italy. This will be capable of supporting market needs in a variety of coatings and adhesives applications in leather and textile finishing, plastic, glass and metal substrates coatings, as well as glass fibre sizing. 

As part of the existing Urethane Systems AD & TS centre, the new lab will operate as a stand-alone facility dedicated to PUDs. It has been built with the scope of enhancing LANXESS Urethane Systems business partnership with clients and end users, via a technology focused interaction and high scientific focus. Start of operation will be in the third quarter of 2018.

“There is a growing demand from customers for VOC (volatile organic compounds) free and lower carbon footprint materials,” says Dr Markus Eckert, Head of LANXESS’s Urethane Systems business unit. “Moreover, the increasing regulatory pressure upon restricted chemicals stimulates the applied research in water-based technologies. Hence, the foundation of a focused technical centre is consistent with LANXESS’s strategy towards green technologies and chemistry.”

“The laboratory in Latina will be capable of doing analytical work, formulation development and synthesis of novel products to satisfy market needs with a high degree of technical differentiation,” Eckert continues.
