A new generation of durable Polyurethane is available for applications exposed to harsh environments. This durable Polyurethane offers superior & long-term retention of designed performances.

Durable Polyurethane

For many Polyurethane based applications, it is real challenge to provide superior & long-term retention of designed performances, with no modification of initial properties after being exposed to harsh environments.

Now, a new generation of durable Polyurethane is available.

The Polyurethane produced from Eternacoll® Polycarbonate diols is superior to the one produced from Polyether-diol or Polyester-diol in terms of durability. Why? Because it can provide outstanding performances, such as:

Tick mark Excellent water resistance
Tick mark Increased chemical and stain resistance
Tick mark High thermal stability / lower yellowish
Tick mark Improved mechanical properties
Tick mark Very good scratch & abrasion resistance, and others!

Case Studies from Durable Polyurethane

Maximize the endurance of PU adhesives for industrial protection footwear

Polyurethane adhesives are broadly used for attaching the upper shoe to the sole. But when it comes to industrial protection footwear, you have to make sure that you use the best Polyurethane adhesives that can resist to severe chemical attack and extreme conditions. Eternacoll® Polycarbonate Diols significantly improve the performance of waterborne and solvent-based Polyurethane adhesives. Indeed, they bring an improved resistance to severe ageing and extreme chemical attack for long lasting and high performance industrial footwear adhesives.
