Industrial Coatings Resins - Polyurethanes, Part 1
Polyurethanes are the most versatile of all the polymers and can be made liquid, rigid, pliable and stretchable, and can be spread, sprayed or molded. Because a variety of diisocyanates and a wide range of polyols can be used to produce polyurethane, a broad spectrum of materials can be produced to meet the needs for specific applications. Of the many uses for polyurethanes, ~15% are used in Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers (CASE). Learn more about polyurethanes and their CASE applications in this article by expert coatings formulator Marc Hirsch.
