SpecialChem has announced a new season of online training sessions, hosted by Ed Petrie, which will cover Polyurethane Adhesives & Sealants. Participants in the first training session will get Petrie's insights into key areas of PU Adhesive & Sealant formulation, including: an overview of PU chemistry (i.e. morphology, reactivity, crosslinking); selecting fillers, isocyanates, polyols, thixotrophy agents, silanes, primers, etc.; understanding modern 1K and 2K formulations, 100% solid and waterborne formulations; new raw materials and future trends. In session two, Petrie explains how to select and apply PU Adhesives & Sealants. From 100% solid and waterborne PU adhesives to solvent and hot-melt systems (reactive and non-reactive), Petrie will review the cure mechanisms, possible methods of application and the specific applications and market segments where each PU adhesive type finds use.
