- Albemarle launched its Ethacure curatives which are used in curing of epoxies, polyurethanes, and polyurea. According to the company, the curatives improve the product characteristics while adjusting reaction time and eliminating dust exposure.
Pervasive Perpetuity of Polyurethane Manufacturing
Polyurethane continues to remain the most-widely used resin in the cold cast elastomers manufacturing, as it imparts essential properties for elastomers to be classified fit for industrial usage. With social and political pressure regarding environmental degradation on the rise, manufacturers are seeking green alternatives to conventional chemical raw materials for cold cast elastomers. Polyols used for manufacturing polyurethane can be potentially derived from plant or other natural source making the manufacturing process eco-friendly and economical.
Another central development that is fuelling the production of polyurethane is its ability to reduce the percentage of carbon dioxide present in the atmosphere. Preference for carbon dioxide containing polyurethane is viewed as a viable solution to prevent and ebb carbon emissions, while improving the chemical, hydrolytic, and temperature resistance of cold cast elastomers.
