Polyols for Polyurethanes Increase Properties
Featured Product from AGC Chemicals Americas, Inc.
Polyether polyols are key components used in the production of polyurethanes. AGC produces polyether polyol (PREMINOL™) from Propylene Oxide. Subsequently, AGC uses PREMINOL to produce silane modified polyether (EXCESTAR™) as a moisture-curable polymer. These polymers, available in the Americas, have high molecular weights exceeding 10,000. AGC employs an advanced catalyst process which results in polyols with ultra-low monol content, and a narrow molecular weight distribution.
(High Molecular Weight for Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers)
- Good mechanical properties: High flexibility and high cohesive force are suitable for elastic adhesive
- Good durability: High mechanical strength and high elongation enable to provide high durability sealants:
- Good workability: Low viscosity of formulation enables to seal easily even at low temperatures
- Fast curing: Fast cure enables to shorten the total process time
- Environmentally friendly (Plasticizer free, Solvent free): High flexibility and low viscosity polymer enable to reduce the amount of plasticizer and solvent in the formulation
