Production of Intumescent Rigid Polyurethane Foam

BARC has developed a Intumiscent Rigid Polyurethane Foam. The Foam is used as a core packaging material for various radioactive enclosures providing heat insulation and energy absorption properties. The process for production of polyurethane based plastic foams uses urethane groups to provide a wide range of mechanical properties, by reacting relatively higher molecular weight polyhydroxy compounds with organic polyisocyanates in the presence of catalysts and blowing agents.

The process for production of polyurethane based plastic foams uses urethane groups to provide a wide range of mechanical properties, by reacting relatively high molecular weight polyhydroxy compounds and if desired chain extenders or cross linking agents with organic polyisocyanates in the presence of catalysts and blowing agents.

RIGID POLYURETHANE FOAM PROPERTIES

  • To produce an intumescent char on burning to meet furnace testing condition of ASTM E2230
  • To have partial open cell structure with the ability to absorb energy on impact from 9m without splintering as per IAEA Regulation
  • To maintain a minimum Heat Release Rate (HRR) to withstand sustained temperature of 8000C for 30 minutes

ADVANTAGE

  • Use of low cost material with indigenous technology for producing the foam.

APPLICATION

  • The polyurethane foam is suitable for shock and heat shield for transportation packages of radioactive/other materials weighing upto 100 kgs.

INTRODUCTION

The technology offers process for Production of Polyurethane Foam (PUF) including Preparation, Production and Testing of Base Polyols (Grade PD & AM), Isocyanate Component and Polyester Polyol.

PROCESS

The process for production of Polyurethane Foam (PUF) includes production and testing of Base Polyols (Grade PD & AM) and subsequent formulation with catalyst and surfactants. The isocyanate component mixed alongwith the formulated polyester polyols is used for production of Rigid Polyurethane Foam.

The base polyol are produced by the esterification of polyhydric alcohols and acid where the reaction is carried out in jacketed stainless steel vessel with distillation condenser and vacuum arrangement.

RAW MATERIALS

  1. Diethylene Glycol
  2. Phthalic Anhydride
  3. Nonyl Phenol
  4. Soyabeen Oil
  5. Diethanol Amine
  6. Formaldehyde
  7. Polymeric MDI (Methane Di-isocyanide)
  8. Ammonium Polyphosphate 

    Raw materials are easily available in local market.

INFRASTRUCTURE


Schematic arrangement is given in diagram

The production of base polyester polyols and their subsequent formulation requires a regular arrangement of a esterification reactor with condenser, hot oil heating and vacuum arrangement.
Approximate area requirement would be 1000 m2 with industrial license for the production of Synthetic Polyester Polyols or resins.

Equipment required:

  1. Esterification Reaction Vessel with water cooled condenser
  2. Vacuum pump with collection vessel.
  3. Thermic Fluid Boiler.
  4. Blender vessel with gate agitator.
