CASE (Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, and Elastomers), foam and elastic fiber applications all utilize a diverse family of polyols that includes:
- Polytetramethylene ether glycols (PTMEG)
- Polypropylene glycols (PPG)
- Adipate- and phthalate-based polyesters
- Polycaprolactone polyols
- Polycarbonate polyols
Selecting the best polyol for specific formula can be the difference between making a high quality product or a low performance one. The key for making a proper material selection is a good understanding of the inherent characteristics of each polyol chemistry.
