Valikat Catalysts for Polyurethane manufacturing (PU)
Umicore Specialty Materials Brugge (USMB) works with and international team of qualified chemists with more then 25 years experience in different industries.
We synthesize and produce polyurethane catalysts for CASE applications: coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers. We developed our Valikat line of polyurethane catalysts to enable formulators and manufacturers to replace toxic mercury catalysts by the non-toxic bismuth and zinc catalysts.
The Valikat products offer advantages such as:
- Valikat catalysts are non-toxic
- Valikat catalysts can replace lead, mercury and tin catalysts that are being phased out due to legislation and hazardous characteristics
- Valikat catalysts offer selectivity and can be used as co-catalysts
