Autofroth® Marine Fact Sheet
Utilized in boats, jet skis, buoys and protective floation devices, the resin and isocyanate chemistries in Autofroth® react when dispensed through the equipment to form a rigid polyurethane foam that provides flotation benefits
BASF has been creating chemistry for 150 years. In the marine industry, its solutions improve performance and comfort, and ultimately help keep boats afloat. BASF is committed to working with its customers in the marine market to provide innovation solutions that also meet or exceed industry standards
BASF Autofroth Marine Background:
BASF introduces the following next generation Autofroth® Marine flotation systems:
Utilized in boats, jet skis, buoys and protective floation devices, the resin and isocyanate chemistries react when dispensed through the Autofroth equipment to form a rigid polyurethane foam that provides floatation benefits. These two systems off a unique combination of excellent foam performance and low envionment impact. Both passed U.S. Coast Guard Tests, exceeding the regulation of keeping a vessel (under 20 feet in length) afloat for at least 18 hours in the event that the boat becomes submerged.
This marine floatation system offers next-generation sustainability benefits such as:
In addition to the low environmental impact, Autofroth Marine has superior foam performance.
