Presentation Abstract

Further Advancements in Development of High Performance, Bio-Based, Low Free Isocyanate Monomer Prepolymers for Reactive Adhesive Systems

Bio-based and renewable materials continue to play an increasing role in the development of sustainable systems needed to meet the growing demand for environmentally friendly solutions in the adhesive industry. LANXESS has expanded development of a line of high performance, bio-based, low free diisocyanate monomer (LF) products for polyurethane reactive adhesive applications that also carry low health and safety risks. Bio-based LF technology can offer prepolymers with excellent performance, superior processing and productivity, as well as environmental, health and safety advantages when compared to many traditional technologies.

Bio-based LF MDI prepolymers focus on chemical building blocks that are clearly defined to match today's adhesive properties. By exploring additional chemistries and optimization of molecular weight and structure, bio-based LF prepolymers can be tailored to the specific needs of many different applications. Further progress has been made developing bio-based LF MDI prepolymers over a wide range of chemistries & formulations which yield systems with lower viscosity at application temperature, improved performance, better wetting ability, and fast green strength in reactive adhesive formulations.

LANXESS' novel LF bio-based innovations provide excellent performance, processing, and productivity and can enable companies to reduce CO2 emissions while helping to advance climate neutral goals.
