Dow Corning Corp. added five surfactants to its global offerings. The SZ-1175 and SZ-1180 are non-hydrolyzable silicone surfactants designed for the production of flexible slab stock and reduce the need for a flame retardant agent. The SZ-1325E, SZ-1328E and SZ-1346 E additives are useful in high-resiliency molded PU foam applications, Dow Corning said, and are designed to balance the stability and inner cell regularity with breathability and air flow.
