Title: Effects of Varying Formulations of Three TDI Polyurethane Foams

Abstract

Studies were conducted on three TDI polyurethane foam materials to improve production yields of molded-to-size parts. The effects of changes in cell. stabilizers, emulsifiers, catalysts, and the blowing agent were investigated. To evaluate formulation modifications, tests were performed to determine compressive strength, foam reactivity, and free-rise density. Changes in the visual appearance were also documented. Silicone surfactants were found to be superior to organic emulsifiers. In addition, an increase in water content produced parts rated superior to those produced by using the standard formulation for one material, Rigifoam 6003-2.5.
