BASF SE, Ludwigshafen, Germany, has developed a successor for its melamine resin foam Basotect. The material called Basotect UF+ is already available and will replace the previous grade Basotect UF.

According to the company, the new development has improved emission properties than its predecessor and is also suitable for additional applications.

Leightweight and Flame Retardant

The lightweight and flexible foam reportedly is suited for the insulation of rail vehicles as well as of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) technology in buildings. At the same time it reduces the noise level of the facilities. According to the company, Basotect UF+ provides low thermal conductivity, a low density of 7 kg/m³ without release of mineral fibers during processing.

The new material meets the fire safety requirements for industrial applications (e.g. ASTM C141) and in the transportation sector (HL3 according to EN 45545). It is flame retardant even without additives and can be used up to temperatures of 240 °C.
