Q&A About Polyurethane
We manufacture prepolymers with an isocyanate content of 15-20% NCO using a variety of diphenylmethane-based isocyanates and polyether polyols.
I am developing an adhesive for an application that requires heat resistance greater than 80°C. A formulation based on a waterborne polyurethane polymer currently provides the best adhesion to the substrate and is a fit for the application process. What approaches can be used to achieve the required level of elevated temperature performance?
I would like to achieve the high performance of a two-component polyurethane coating, but my application process is only able to handle a one-component system. Can any existing formulations help me make this performance leap?
Certain polymer-based adhesives are described as crystalline, while others are described as amorphous. How do these adhesive polymer types differ? What advantages could be expected from each type?
