Multranol® polyether polyols for polyurethanes
Polyurethanes enhance our lives every day. Polyurethane (PU) foams improve the energy efficiency of homes. PU coatings protect cars and give them a unique appearance. PU sealants and liquid membranes prevent water from penetrating the roof of many commercial buildings.
Many different types of polyols and polyisocyanates – the building blocks of polyurethanes – are used to impart diverse, high-performance properties.
Multranol® polyether polyols from Covestro are low-viscosity ingredients that yield polyurethanes with good resistance to hydrolysis.
Our Multranol® polyether polyols are used in the production of adhesives and sealants, flexible and rigid foams, and reaction injection-molded (RIM) urethanes. In some cases, they are the major reactant, while in others they function as a modifier.
Chemistries used to prepare Multranol® polyols include:
- Ethylene oxide/ propylene oxide
- Soybean oil and glycerin (renewable)
Various grades of Multranol® polyols have been developed in response to the needs of formulators. We are continually building on our extensive expertise in polyurethane technology, creating new polyether polyols for advanced polyurethane applications.
