Poliuretano

Il poliuretano è un materiale molto versatile e ampiamente utilizzato. Oltre a schiume rigide e morbide, schiume integrali, guarnizioni e isolamenti, il poliuretano è anche la la componente principale di elastomeri, materiali adesivi e di tenuta, vernici e rivestimenti.
Le esigenze del mercato sono altrettanto complesse: in primo luogo si devono considerare le macrotendenze relative al prodotto finale, come ad esempio riduzione delle emissioni, durevolezza dei prodotti, ecc. Inoltre, i trasformatori hanno la forte esigenza di migliorare il processo di produzione esistente con gli additivi appropriati.

La nostra azienda offre un team di vendita composto da specialisti (in tutta Europa), i quali garantiscono una consulenza tecnica orientata alla risoluzione dei problemi e un ampio portfolio di fornitori leader di additivi, tra cui:

Hot Topic: Dabco® and Kosmos® - Alternatives to DBTL and DOTL in coatings, adhesives and sealants

DBTL and DOTL are standard tin catalysts in coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers based on polyurethane or MS polymer. Very often a synergistic effect with amine catalysts is used, as those promote a fast curing at the beginning. Tin catalysts, on the other hand, are responsible for effective end curing. In the case of coatings, a well chosen combination can help to control drying and transportability, for example.

In some applications there is a need for alternatives to DBTL and DOTL. Different reasons can be found for this:

  • Regulatory
    • Customer specifications demand tin-free formulations,
    • A better classification with regard to EH&S for the end product is necessary.
  • Application related
    • More reactive catalysts compared to DBTL / DOTL are needed,
    • A delayed effect in curing could be helpful (pot life control).
    • Catalysts that are more stable against hydrolysis are required (pot stability).

With the Kosmos® and Dabco® catalysts from Evonik, Biesterfeld can offer interesting alternatives here.
