MPM to Launch New Additive at UTECH Asia

Momentive Performance Materials Inc.

Momentive Performance Materials Inc. (MPM) will launch Niax* flame lamination additive, FLE-500, at UTECH Asia. This product can help manufacturers meet strict fogging and emissions specifications for flame and heat lamination of polyether foams by improving the total emission levels of finished foam goods.

FLE-500 flame lamination additive contains chemicals that will react into the polymer matrix during the foaming process to reduce the smoke density when burned and decrease the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from the foam. FLE-500 additive can also be incorporated into formulations in lower dosages. Due to these factors, finished foam products have demonstrated lower emission levels when tested by manufacturers.

Niax FLE-500 can help manufacturers achieve these other benefits as well:

  • Improved processing: This additive helps foam melt and dry faster during the lamination process, allowing lamination to be completed in a shorter time.
  • Reduced cost: Since Niax FLE-500 additive possesses higher bonding strength in lower usage amounts, the lower dosage can save on cost without sacrificing performance. This additive remains strong during initial and final peeling phases.
  • Decreased waste: Because Niax FLE-500 additive is a low-viscosity material, it typically can be introduced into formulations without major equipment adjustments. This may help reduce formulation errors that result in waste.

Additionally, this additive acts as a mild antioxidant to help reduce foam discoloration.

The entire portfolio of Niax silicone products for foam applications will be showcased at booth N2-80. For more information, visit
