  • VORANOL™ Polyether Polyols

Low- and High-density Foam Component Enhances Product Quality, Aesthetics and Comfort

Available in a wide range of properties, VORANOL™ polyether polyols help automotive manufacturers differentiate their products in terms of quality, aesthetics and comfort. Dow is the world's largest producer of polyether polyols. VORANOL polyether polyols allow for increased complexity of part design because of excellent foam flowability and better compression compression-set properties than other low Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emission foam types, helping improve foam shape memory after compression. VORANOL polyether polyols can also help reduce VOC emissions from molded foams by as much as 50 percent, aiding in the reduction of windshield fogging, PVC staining and polycarbonate degradation.


  • Helps enable product quality, aesthetics and comfort differentiation
  • Allow increased complexity of part design
  • Versatility enables use for a broad range of semi-flexible molded foam applications
  • Consistent quality
  • Low VOC emissions
  • Low staining characteristics


VORANOL™ polyether polyols are used to produce low- to high-density foams. Among the potential applications are seating, acoustical foam, instrument panel foam and headliners.

Application Methods

VORANOL™ polyether polyols have the amine catalyst directly built into them, allowing foamers to skip a step in the manufacturing process, streamline formulating costs and avoid handling of catalysts. VORANOL polyether polyols enable foam products to be produced using open and closed molds. Technical Service and Development is offered to assure proper application techniques.
