Innovative Technology

Discover Low Free Technology windmills at sunset

Low Free Technology

LANXESS is a leading innovator in the development of LF isocyanate technology which brings unparalleled performance and industrial hygiene to cast elastomers, coatings, and adhesives applications. LF urethane prepolymers minimize exposure to free isocyanate, a subject of increasing regulatory focus. LANXESS is the only manufacturer offering LF urethane prepolymers with levels of free isocyanate below 0.1% (wt) across a wide range of chemistries.
Discover Blocked Technology Rear light of a red painted car

Blocked Technology

LANXESS offers an extensive portfolio of blocked prepolymers that incorporate a broad range of isocyanate and polyol chemistries. They are blocked with a range of blocking agents which are designed to unblock at specific curing temperatures and can be tailored to your specific needs. Heat cured systems overcome compounding limitations and can help to reduce energy consumption or processing time and provide a safer working environment.
