An elastomeric polymer with excellent chemical and water resistance. Single component (moisture cure) and 2-part (chemical cure) systems are available. Both types may be applies in a fluid state and cure (polymerize) after installation. Typical tile industry applications include sealants, caulks, waterproofing membranes and high performance flexible adhesives.
A type of paint or polymer which results from the reaction of an isocyanate with hydroxyl containing component. Urethanes are noted for their toughness and abrasion resistance. Also see Acrylic Urethane, Polyurethane
Any of several strong polymer adhesives that are used to install auto glass. Urethane adhesives are necessary to meet government standards for windshield retention in most late-model passenger vehicles.
MS = Antineoplastic agent that is also used as a veterinary anesthetic. It has also been used as an intermediate in organic synthesis. Urethane is suspected to be a carcinogen. AN = POLYURETHANES is available UI = D014520
Actually a misnomer as applied to polyurethane foam. A colorless, crystalline substance used primarily in medicines, pesticides, and fungicides. Urethane is not used in the production of urethane polymers or foams. The urethanes of the plastics industry are so named because the repeating units of their structures resemble the chemical urethane.
(chemical identification: polyurethane diisocyanate-CU): is the reaction products of polyethers and polyesters diisocyanates. These rubbers are complex and varied, offering a wide range of pyisical properties.
A polymeric material that is formed by the use of an Isocyanate base chemical. Viscosity A measure of the resistance of a fluid to flow or the internal friction within the body of fluid. Measured in Centipoises or Pascal seconds. See "Common Viscosities."
A white crystalline substance, NH2.CO.OC2H5, produced by the action of ammonia on ethyl carbonate or by heating urea nitrate and ethyl alcohol. It is used as a hypnotic, antipyretic, and antispasmodic. Hence, any ester of carbamic acid.
