Bio-Based Polyol for Polyurethanes

Wednesday, March 31, 2010

Comment | More

Huntsman Corp.’s Performance Products division (The Woodlands, Texas) announced the commercial availability of a new, bio-based polyol for use in polyurethanes.

The product, JEFFADD™ B650, is derived from a vegetable oil, and is targeted for use in spray polyurethane foam (SPF), coatings, adhesives, sealants, rigid foam, and hybrid polyureas, the company says.

A notable feature of the polyol, the company says, is miscibility in water, making the product usable in water-blown and water-based systems. The polyol also is reported to be VOC and acid free, to possess reactivity comparable to Mannich polyols, and to enhance properties such as abrasion resistance in coatings.

Stu Monteith, vice president, specialities, for Huntsman’s Performance Products division, said the polyol “addresses the need for a functional, cost-effective, and renewable polyol for water-borne spray foam and other polyurethane applications, and it gives formulators the opportunity to produce value-added products with renewable content.”
