Shanghai, China – Yadong Group, a polyol maker covering a wide range of applications including rigid foam, flexible foam and CASE, brought its latest developed high fire retardant product to UTECH Asia 2016 held in Shanghai.
“It can meet the British fire retardant standard for auto interiors, the most stringent standard in the segment,” the company’s sales manager Xian Zenggang told UTECH-polyurethane.com. “This is a breakthrough in our product quality,” he added.
The company also plans to launch a handful of new high fire retardant products later this year.
Based in Shijiazhuang, Hebei, Yadong has 200kT/year polyol capacity and saw its fastest regional growth last year in the Yangtze Delta area. The company sells to the Middle East and Southeast Asia while the domestic market accounted for 80% of its sales in 2015.
In terms of downstream applications, “cold chain was doing exceptionally well last year,” Xian added. “Not so much for building insulation. It’s a large enough market but you need to find a way in, either with lower costs or higher fire retardant performance.”
