New foam grade Basotect® UF+ with improved emission profile
Sound absorbing and thermally insulating foam for special applications in rail vehicles and building technology
Basotect® UF+ provides the same properties as its precursor Basotect® UF: high elasticity, low thermal conductivity, extremely low density of 7 kg/m³ without release of mineral fibers during processing. The high flexibility enables individual solutions to fit into very small gaps as well as for highly curved surfaces, e.g. ceilings and walls. Basotect® UF+ meets the highest fire safety requirements, including the American ASTM C1410 test standard for industrial applications.
Because of its dimensional stability, very low density and excellent flame retardant properties the BASF foam is also suitable for sound absorption and insulation of trains, subways and trams. Basotect® UF+ reaches the highest possible safety level for fire protection in the transportation sector (HL3 according to EN 45545) and can thus be employed in a variety of railway and rail vehicle categories.
Basotect® is an open-cell foam made from melamine resin with a unique property profile: Its base material makes it extremely flame-resistant without additional flame retardants. It can be used up to 240°C while maintaining its properties across a broad temperature range. Due to its open-cell foam structure, it is lightweight, sound-absorbing, flexible even at low temperatures, and has excellent thermal insulation properties. Basotect® is used in numerous industries, ranging from automotive, aerospace, construction to household applications.
