At Concentrol research plays a fundamental role. A number of studies are carried out daily with a common goal: to acquire knowledge and continue giving value to customers and distributors to offer better chemical solutions every day.

With this aim and in order to continue improving, Concentrol has prepared some white papers compiling studies on different subjects developed at our R&D+i laboratories.

The first instalment, available for downloading, is entitled “21st century Surfactants”. This white paper includes studies on PU foam surfactants, and describes, firstly, why an appropriate chemical composition and choosing the ideal molecular weight of the surfactant are key in order to achieve foams free from gas emissions, and secondly, how to find out if surfactants with truncated reactivity improve the foam properties or only increase their cost.

In the coming weeks we will publish the second white paper, focused on studies on antifoaming agents.
