Polyurethane and Polyurea
Polyurethane: our Partners offer catalysts, chain extenders, crosslinkers, curing agents, anti-static agents, blowing agents, solvents, reactive intermediates and surfactants. Polyurethane materials are used in many applications due to their stiffness and density characteristics. For example
- CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers)
- Insulation foam
- Structural Foam
- High resiliency bedding and upholstery foam
Polyurea: our Partners offer chain extenders and catalysts. Polyurea has many applications due to its many unique properties. Polyurea is a fast cure, spray applied product that is durable, flexible, water and air tight and resistant to many chemicals. Applications are diverse and include pipe coatings, bridge coatings, roof coatings, flooring and car park coatings, manhole and sewer linings, holding tank linings.
Additives are important constituents of polyurethane and polyurea systems allowing control and the ability to modify the characteristics of foam and non-foam polyurethane and polyurea e.g. size, flexibility, chemical resistance, reaction rate.
For epoxy formulators our Partners offer hardeners, accelerators, curing agents and catalysts. Epoxy systems are mainly used in coatings, adhesives and composites materials.
Epoxy systems can provide adhesion and mechanical properties, chemical and heat resistance.
