SABIC’S new NORYL polyol improves performance of MDI-BDO cast polyurethanes and offers alternative to TDI-MOCA cured systems

SABIC’s new NORYL™ AP2001G aromatic polyol can enhance hardness and toughness performance of MDI-BDO cast polyurethanes at high temperatures up to 70°C, which potentially allows MDI-BDO cast PU to be used in extreme conditions, such as for oil and gas exploration, gasketing and mining applications.SABIC, a global leader in the chemical industry, today announced that its recently launched NORYL™ AP2001G aromatic polyol can significantly improve the performance of hot cast polyurethanes (PUs) based on methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) and polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMG). By boosting the hardness, toughness and stiffness properties of cast PU by double digits, NORYL AP2001G polyol can enable MDI formulations cured with 1,4-butanediol (BDO) to deliver equivalent or better performance compared to toluene diisocyanate (TDI) and PTMG PU formulations cured with MOCA (4,4'-methylene bis(ortho-chloroaniline)).
