HUNTSMAN: Prepolymers

September 13, 2004
SUPRASEC 2344, a new generation of prepolymers from Huntsman Polyurethanes' Adhesives, Coatings and Elastomers team, provides an improved through cure in thicker adhesive layers. It offers adhesives and coatings formulators (particularly for the automotive, structural wood laminates and furniture assembly industries) a simplified and faster-curing process, together with enhanced gap filling properties and performance benefits. The new generation prepolymers overcome the disadvantage associated with standard prepolymers of a fast cure at the surface and the formation of a urea shell. The improved through cure of SUPRASEC 2344 promotes the penetration of moisture into the thicker sections of the prepolymer, which is of particular benefit when used on uneven substrates. Stefan Stein, marketing manager, Huntsman Polyurethanes' ACE, says, "Huntsman Polyurethanes' ACE is constantly working with customers to understand specific requirements in key markets. Through such proactive partnerships, the team is able to respond with innovations such as SUPRASEC 2344."
