Published on 2014-06-05. Author : SpecialChem

WILMINGTON, N.C. -- After introducing the TERRIN™ polyols brand to the market in 2013, INVISTA recently manufactured the first commercial batch of TERRIN™ 170 polyol at its facility in Wilmington, N.C., completing TSCA registration for the entire TERRIN™ polyol family and placing it on the U.S. Chemical Inventory. INVISTA continues its commitment to sustainability and the polyurethane industry by developing products with recycled and renewable content.

The TERRIN™ product portfolio contains 100 percent aliphatic polyester polyols that contain a minimum of 50 percent recycled content - with some containing renewable content, as well. They can be used in lieu of or in combination with conventional polyether or polyester polyols to formulate a variety of polyurethane products. TERRIN™ polyols are versatile materials that can be used in applications ranging from viscoelastic foam to spray coatings and adhesives to elastomeric resins.

“It’s an exciting time as we continue to develop the TERRIN™ polyols line,” said Richard Beatty, technical fellow at INVISTA. “The TERRIN™ polyols series is a unique, cost-competitive offering—and we’re learning more about how it can play in different types of product markets. As we work with customers, we continue to uncover new applications that benefit from using TERRIN™ polyols,” Beatty said.

The TERRIN™ polyols team, as well as INVISTA’s Terate® polyols and TERATHANE® PTMEG teams, will be exhibiting at the Urethanes Technology North America exhibition (booth 529) June 4-5 at the Charlotte Convention Center in North Carolina.
