Polyurethane / Elastomers

Polyurethane1This is a category of chemicals that is growing very rapidly. PU Foam (Rigid, Semi Rigid and Flexible) has a number of applications in construction, automotive industry and home decor. Rigid Foam finds use both in industrial and commercial construction. It is used as cold insulation for pipes carrying low temperature fluids. It is also used for insulation of ducts in air conditioning in large commercial buildings (Airports, Office complex etc).
PTMEG
Specifications
This is sourced out of Taiwan and South Korea. The most common grades that we deal in are 1000 MW and 2000 MW. PTMEG is commonly used in Castable Polyurethanes: caster wheels, industrial tires, skate wheels, rolls and roll covers, mining screens, and industrial belts. Thermoplastic Polyurethanes: ski boots, transparent films for laminating, cable jacketing, hot-melt coatings, hoses and medical tubing. Polyurethane coatings: protective coatings, fabric and leather coatings, artificial leather, tank and pipe lines as well as Polyurethane adhesives and sealants.

Polyols
Specifications
These are a class of compounds which have multiple hydroxyl groups. They are reacted with Isocyanate for cross linking to produce Polyurethanes. Polyols fall ito 2 classes, Polyester Polyols and Polyether Polyols.

Toluene Di Isocyanate
Specifications
Though there are 6 possible isomers of TDI, commercially the important ones are 2, 4 Toluene Di Isocyanate and 2, 6 TDI. Generally commercially available TDI is either 80% 2, 4 isomer and 20% 2, 6 Isomer or in the ratio of 65:35. Almost 90% of the TDI produced goes into the production of Flexible Polyurethane (which are used in the manufacture of car seats, furniture and mattresses). Balance 10% has varied applications such as PU Adhesives, Rigid Foams, Paints, PU Coatings / Elastomers and as a cross linking agent for Nylon 6. We have been sourcing this product out of Korea and China. We also are exploring the possibility of sourcing it out of a recently commissioned plant in India.
