Dabco 2040 is a low-odor, emission-free amine catalyst that promotes the balance of urethane and urea reactions with high efficiency and a wide processing range. It is suitable for soft block foams and spray foams where smooth reaction curves are required.

Dabco 2040 is a clear, colorless liquid with a mild odor. It is miscible with water, alcohols, and ketones. Dabco 2040 has a flash point of 100 °F (38 °C) and a vapor pressure of 0.1 mmHg at 25 °C. Dabco 2040 is stable under normal conditions.

Dabco 2040 is a safe and effective catalyst for polyurethane foam production. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using Dabco 2040 to ensure safe and effective use.

Here are some of the benefits of using Dabco 2040:

· Low odor

· No glow

· Promotes the balance of the carbamate and urea reaction

· High efficiency

· Wide processing range

· Suitable for soft block foam and spray foam

If you have any further questions about Dabco 2040, consult the manufacturer’s safety data sheet or contact a qualified professional.


Here are some more details about Dabco 2040:

· Dabco 2040 is a tertiary amine. A tertiary amine is an organic compound containing three nitrogen atoms. Tertiary amines are often used as catalysts in chemical reactions.

· Dabco 2040 is a balanced catalyst. This means that it promotes the urethane and urea reactions in polyurethane foam. This results in the foam having good properties, such as strength, flexibility, and water resistance.

· Dabco 2040 is a highly efficient catalyst. This means that it requires less catalyst to create foam than other catalysts. This saves money and reduces the environmental impact.

· Dabco 2040 has a wide processing range. This means that it can be used in a variety of polyurethane systems. This makes it a versatile catalyst that can be used to produce a variety of foams.

Here are some of the risks associated with using Dabco 2040:

· Dabco 2040 is a skin irritant. Avoid contact with your skin.

· Dabco 2040 is a respiratory irritant. Avoid inhaling vapors or fumes.

· Dabco 2040 is flammable. Keep away from heat sources and open flames.
