Hamburg, 15 March 2017 – Haltermann Carless is appearing from 4 to 6 April 2017 at UTECH Las Américas, which is being held in the Centro Citibanamex in Mexico City. For several years now, UTECH has traditionally offered an excellent platform for presenting the strategic pentanes product group, which is becoming increasingly important as an environmentally friendly propellant for polyurethane foam.
UTECH Las Américas has set itself the goal of bringing together buyers and suppliers in the polyurethanes global market for the first time on the Central American continent and with a corresponding focus on Latin America. Mexico is one of the fastest growing countries for this industrial sector. Parallel to the trade fair, a conference will be held at UTECH on “Opportunities for the Future in Polyurethanes”. This year, Haltermann Carless can be found at Booth 211 in the Centro Banamex.
“For us, UTECH Las Américas provides a way for tapping not only into the growing US market, but also the interesting markets in Latin America,” says Henrik Krüpper, CSO HCS Group. “We’re intensifying our efforts in these markets, as the environment is becoming an increasingly important issue. Our pentanes have no effect on the ozone layer and thus provide a clean and economical alternative for manufacturers of insulating material.”
“As a result, pentanes are increasingly being used as a clean alternative to halogenated propellants for polyurethane foams,” explains René Tessmann, head of the Pentanes Business Line at Haltermann Carless. “Polyurethane foams are mainly used in domestic appliances and the construction industry as well as for insulating pipes. Latin America is therefore an emerging market that we would like to tap into.”
Haltermann Carless produces various product types for all three pentanisomers, including n-pentane 95%, isopentane 95%, cyclopentane PU (at least 95%), cyclopentane I (70) and cyclopentane IP85. Haltermann’s traditional core competences lie, for example, in customer certification, expertise and high product quality. Based on these, Haltermann Carless offers a wide range of customer-specific formulations tailored to individual customer needs.
