Specialty chemicals company Lanxess has come up with a new applications development and technical services (AD and TS) laboratory for polyurethane dispersions (PUDs) in Latina, Italy. As part of the existing Urethane Systems AD and TS centre, the lab will operate as a standalone facility dedicated to PUDs. It will start operations in the 3rd quarter of 2018.

The laboratory 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. It 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.

“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 center is consistent with Lanxess’s strategy towards green technologies and chemistry.”

Urethane coatings demand wear, abrasion, chemical and UV resistance, for which Lanxess can offer a range of solutions. “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.

Lanxess Urethane Systems is one of the leading manufacturers in hot-cast prepolymers as well as of specialty aqueous polyurethane dispersions, coating systems and polyester polyols. The specialised polyurethane systems know-how for various applications, global production capabilities and deep application expertise all come together to enable Urethane Systems to provide solutions tailored to meet the customers’ needs.
