Blend of tertiary amines in a polyether polyol
Addocat 1926 is a balanced catalyst for rigid foam with improved metering compared to 726 B.
Addocat 1926 is a mixture of a tertiary amine and a polyol.
Addocat 1926 acts as a catalyst for the production of rigid polyurethane foams.
Addocat 1926 is hygroscopic and should therefore be protected from air humidity.
As the product contains only 50 % of active ingredient, Addocat 1926 must be used at dosages of 2 - 6 p.b.w., calculated on 100 p.b.w. polyether polyol.
Addocat 1926 applications include discontinuous production of foam sheets and sandwich panels, discontinuous heat/cold insulation of piping and refrigeration equipment, on-site casting.
Addocat 1926 has a shelf life of minimum six months.
Function of Addocat 1926:
Addocat 1926 is used for the production of polyurethane flexible slabstock foam and hot-moulded foam.
Addocat 1926 is also used for HR foam and, as a co-catalyst, for rigid foams.
Product Applications of Addocat 1926:
Body for electrical equipment
Housing for Electric and Electronics

Product information of Addocat 1926:
Addocat 108 is a powerful catalyst for the gas reaction.
Flexible polyether foam:
Addocat 108 is one of the standard catalysts used to promote the gas reaction in the production of polyether slabstock foam and hot-moulded foam (dosage 0.1 - 0.15 p.b.w. on 100 p.b.w. polyol).
Here it is always used in combination with Addocat SO (0.1 - 0.3 p.b.w.).
HR foam (moulded and slabstock foam):
In this case the reaction can be controlled with Addocat 108 (0.1 - 0.5 p.b.w. on 100 p.b.w. polyol) in combination with Addocat 105 (0.3 -1.0 p.b.w.).
In the production of semi-rigid filling foam it has been found advisable to use triethanol amine (up to 4.0 p.b.w.) in addition to Addocat 108.
This gives a more open cell structure.
In rigid foam systems Addocat 108 is used only as a co-catalyst in combination with Addocat 726 b, Addocat 1926, Addocat 1221 or Addocat 9412.
Even small additions of Addocat 108 (0.1 p.b.w.) improve the flowability of the system.
Applications of Addocat 1926:
- Continuous production of panels and slabstock.
- Discontinuous heat/cold insulation of piping and refrigerators.
Packing of Addocat 1926:
Metal cans, contents 50 kg
Metal drums, contents 175 kg
Plastic-IBC, contents 800 kg
Storage stability of Addocat 1926:
When Addocat 108 is stored in firmly closed original containers a shelf life of 12 months can be expected.
Possible yellowing of the liquid in the course of time has no influence on the product's catalytic effect.
Handling of Addocat 1926:
