USB promotes 33 new soy-based products

The new products containing soy range, for example, from downhole crude oil recovery aides to Nascar racing tyres. More than 800 soy-based products have been developed since 1990 with USB support. According to the USB, soy products often contain fewer volatile organic compounds (VOCs) than traditional products, which contribute to air safety for workers and product consumers. Soybean oil also has good solvency and lubricity, as noted by USB, and the higher flashpoints of soybean oil derivatives provide additional safety benefits when used in products like transformers. The list of products developed with USB support in 2014 includes new additions to some popular soy-based product categories, such as plastics, adhesives, and rubber: Plastics: Eco Ultimate Silencer - Foam underlayment and carpet cushion by Foam Products Corp.Eco Silencer HD FOF - A high-density-foam underlayment for floors by Foam Products Corp.Betafoam Renue - Sound-deadening foam by Dow Chemical that is used in carsAutomotive seating for GM cars - Foam made with soy polyols by Lear CorporationTSE EcoWind - A polyurethane resin with soy oil for filament winding by TSE Industries, Inc.
