Lupragen® N107 (DMEE, Dimethylaminoethoxyethanol) is a liquid tertiary amine with a free hydroxyl group.
As a tertiary amine Lupragen® N107 is used as a broad range polyurethane catalyst. Like its sister Lupragen® N205 (BDMAEE) it catalyzes predominately the blow reaction.
Lupragen® N107 binds chemically with its free hydroxyl group into the polyurethane matrix and thereby stays in the foam. Lupragen® N107 is therefore usually described as “reactive” and "low VOC" catalyst.
Lupragen® N107 main applications are spray foam and foams for packaging.
