TradenameChemistryDescription
LIPOLAN™ F 2040F HSSBRLIPOLAN F 2040F is an aqueous dispersion of a styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which provides a good stability and foamability. LIPOLAN F 2040F does not contain any antioxidant. LIPOLAN F 2040F is mainly used to produce moulded foam. Foam made of LIPOLAN F 2040F exhibits a very soft indentation hardness with a very high resilience.
LIPOLAN™ F 2420F HSSBRLIPOLAN F 2420F is an aqueous dispersion of a reinforced styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which provides a good stability and foamability. Moulded foam based on LIPOLAN F 2420F exhibits a soft indentation hardness with good resilience.
LIPOLAN™ F 2810F HSSBRLIPOLAN F 2810F is an aqueous dispersion of a reinforced styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which provides a good stability and foamability. Moulded foam based on LIPOLAN F 2810F exhibits a very high indentation hardness with a good resilience.
LIPOLAN™ F 2820F HSSBRLIPOLAN F 2820F is an aqueous dispersion of a reinforced styrene-butadiene copolymer with a high solids content. The emulsifier used is an alkaline salt of fatty acids, which gives the product good stability and foamability. Moulded foam based on LIPOLAN F 2820F exhibits a medium high indentation hardness with a good resilience.
