Cannon Group said its AX mixing head for polyurethane can process six components, including water-based additives and low-viscosity isocyanates based on toluene diisocyanate, with high-pressure recirculation.
Cannon of Milan, Italy, designed the AX for foaming car seats.
The TDI stream can be injected at low pressure. Cannon said that minimizes the risk of leakage in the dosing circuit. Several pure ingredients are kept separate, avoiding cross-contamination, up to the moment of injection, and the AX makes it possible to operate each stream on demand.
The mixing head makes it possible to tailor foam properties for each seat on a molding line.
Cannon USA is based in Cranberry Township, near Mars, Pa.
