Pacific Urethanes takes its role as a responsible corporate citizen very seriously. This was a key driver in securing our environmental management system certified to ISO14001.
As part of our ISO140001 environmental accreditation Pacific Urethanes has agreed to challenging targets for the replacement or the elimination of key raw materials that have a high impact on our environment and climate.
Pacific Urethanes is now proud to announce that as part of this program our UrePac™ cast elastomers are now mercury free. The elimination of mercury catalysts from our range has been a priority since our ISO14001 accreditation.
Mercury has been the mainstay catalyst for polyurethane elastomers for the last 50 years. It has been a very challenging product to replace for our team of chemists.
Pacific Urethanes is also re-launching the Dow Hyperlast and Diprane elastomer series. These products have also been replaced with mercury free alternatives. We are the first polyurethane systems house in Australia to achieve this goal. It is further evidence of our technical capability in formulating polyurethane systems.
