Niax silicone L-580K is a non-hydrolyzable silicone, designed to provide excellent foam stability and fine regular cell structure in extremely low-density foams using liquid carbon dioxide as the blowing agent. In stretched formulations with high TDI, high water, high CO2, Niax silicone L-580K provides superior nucleating efficiency and dramatically reduces striations in the foam bun. It has full hydrolytic stability and can be used as a separate stream or in water/amine/ silicone preblends. Niax silicone L-580K offers enhanced stability while yielding foams with good breathability.
