What is a Polyurethane? Formed by the reaction of a polyisocyanate and a polyol When polyisocyanate reacts with water it joins with another polyisocyanate and releases carbon dioxide causing expansion. When polyisocyanate reacts with water it joins with another polyisocyanate and releases carbon dioxide causing expansion. Can be supplied as SINGLE or TWO part formulations.
Characteristics of Polyurethane? Excellent Adhesion Outstanding hydrolytic Wide range of formulation capability and chemical resistance Adjustable reactivity Little to no odor during and after application Easy to apply or install
