Cray Valley Introduces Hydrogenated Monols and Diols for Adhesives and Sealants

Published on 2013-07-23. Author : SpecialChem

Cray Valley is pleased to introduce Hydrogenated Monols and Diols based on the Krasol Platform. The hydrogenated Krasol diols and monols can be used as reactive intermediates for a variety of specialized applications. Krasol polybutadiene polyol products are linear oliogmers characterized by having very narrow molecular weight distributions and quantitative terminal hydroxyl functionality.

A complete hydrogenation step results in highly uniform products with no residual unsaturation while maintaining terminal functionality. When used in specialty applications, the resulting Krasol HLBH grades still impart the hydrophobic character normally associated with liquid polybutadienes, but are no longer subject to degradation over time when exposed to UV radiation and oxidative conditions.

Currently, two Krasol HLBH grades are available: Krasol® HLBH P 2000 and Krasol® HLBH 5000M.


  • Fully saturated olefinic backbone
  • Reactive terminal hydroxyl groups
  • Liquid physical form
  • Highly controlled structure

Target Markets/Applications

  • Adhesives
  • Sealants
  • Electronics
  • Filler Dispersion
  • Compatibilization
