(Photo © 2015 Milliken & Company, all rights reserved, MKPR131)Ghent, Belgium – Milliken & Company’s Milliguard® AOX-1 novel polymer-bound antioxidant for polyurethane (PU) addresses more-stringent environmental, health and safety requirements while delivering outstanding thermal stabilization performance at low loadings. It offers a unique solution for compliance with tougher vehicle indoor air quality standards - such as China’s new passenger car air quality assessment guidelines and similar emerging standards in other regions - by contributing negligible volatile organic compound (VOC) and outgassing condensation (FOG) content in emissions testing. Milliguard AOX-1 antioxidant also offers unparalleled efficiency in stabilizing free radicals that can degrade polyurethane (PU) foam, and is highly synergistic with other antioxidant classes. This Milliken technology provides polyol producers and foam manufacturers with a powerful tool for interior vehicle components such as seats, door trim, carpet, instrument panels, headliners and consoles.
