Gantrade Corporation is strongly committed to providing a reliable source of high-quality raw materials to the polyurethane and polyurea industries. Our diverse product portfolio is designed to serve cast elastomers, polyurea coatings, adhesives, sealants, TPUs, TPEEs, and adjacent markets. Our team uses our extensive applications expertise and collaborative approach with our customers, to tailor these products to their specific requirements.
Polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG) is a premium quality polyether diol. PTMEG is the material of choice for all polyurethane products where excellent hydrolytic resistance, good dynamic performance, high elongation, resiliency, and resistance to impingement abrasion are critical properties. It is an essential raw material for production of high-performance cast polyurethane resin systems, thermoplastic polyurethanes and polyester-ester elastomers, abrasion-resistant coatings, Spandex fibers, industrial tires, caster wheels, and skate wheels. Gantrade offers a comprehensive line of PTMEG diols, with molecular weights of 210, 650, 1000, 1400, 1800, 2000, and 3000. This allows a wide latitude in formulating, to achieve the desired material properties.
Our glycol adipate polyols are preferred building blocks for polyurethane systems where high tensile and tear strength, good UV resistance, and resistance to hydrocarbon based, non-polar solvents are required. Applications for glycol adipate polyols include mining, oil and gas, and materials management. A special group of 2-methyl-1,3-propanediol (MPO) based adipates offers a significant improvement in hydrolytic stability and compatibility with low molecular weight diols, making them an excellent choice for flexible, outdoor applications.
Gantrade offers a diverse portfolio of diol and diamine curatives. From conventional curatives for MDI and TDI systems, like our low moisture 1,4-butanediol (BDO) and 4,4’-methylene-bis-(ortho-chloroaniline) (MOCA), to the specialty diols like hydroquinone diethonol (HQEE), hydroxyethyl ether of resorcinol(HER), 2-methyl-1,3-propanediol (MPO), 1,6-hexanediol (HDO) and specialty diamines like 4,4’-methylene-bis-(3-chloro-2,6-diethylaniline) (MCDEA), 4,4’-methylene-bis-(2-ethylaniline) (MBOEA), diethyl toluene diamene (DETDA), p-aminobenzoate capped PTMEG (P- 650, P-1000 and P-2000), and our formulated curatives, Gantrade is capable of providing material solutions to the vast majority of segments within the polyurea and polyurethane industries.
