Dow’s technical service and development specialists Sophie Perilleux and Dario Manzini will present the specifics of these innovations and showcase their performance attributes in bedding and furniture foam applications during a webinar on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time. Participants are invited to register online.

Webinar Vorasurf


Highlighted VORASURF™ Surfactant products include:

• VORASURF™ FF 5955 Additive: a polyurethane surfactant innovation enabling higher air flow, better aeration, EO-rich, viscoelastic or hypersoft foams for more lightweight, high-comfort bedding and furniture applications

• VORASURF™ DC 5188 Additive: a new surfactant compatible with very low to low density (under 15 kg/ m³) continuous slabstock and box foam for furniture applications, particularly suitable for cost-driven markets

• VORASURF™ FF 5959 Additive: a next-generation solution particularly suitable as a co-surfactant to decrease the dosage of cell opener in a formulation, offering finer control over the cell size and foam recovery and pneumaticity properties in viscoelastic foams

VORASURF™ FF 5955 Additive also offers good performance with auxiliary blowing agents, offering new choices of surfactants to help formulators transition towards low ozone depleting potential (ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP) options, including carbon dioxide.
