The European Flexible PU Foam Innovation Award is presented by EUROPUR and Urethanes Technology International. Out of the shortlisted companies, participants at our annual conference taking place on 7 and 8 June 2017 in Milan overwhelmingly voted to give the award to BASF for their Irgastab PUR 70.

The novel amine‐free, aromatic‐solvents‐free anti‐scorch system Irgastab PUR 70 has been designated as the winner because it is said to combine good scorch protection, excellent gas fading resistance, very low light‐induced discoloration as well as extremely low emissions –VOC, FOG and aldehydes to meet the most stringent emissionspecifications set by the automotive industry and regulatory bodies.
