Papers on CMHR

This experimental high performance polyol for combustion modified high-resilience (CMHR
) foams has been shown to minimize or overcome several of the negative aspects of solid flame-retardant additives such as melamine.
In the last issue of the MHS Gazette editor Eva Janssen provided an excellent introduction to the recently opened Canadian Museum of Human Rights (CMHR
