Sustainable Polyols for High-Performance Polyurethane Adhesives

This is a Past Webinar

Polyurethane adhesives offer versatile chemistry and are used for high-performance materials such as electronics and automotive components. Croda offers Priplast™ bio-based polyols that offer excellent adhesion for multi-material design as well as durability and moisture protection. These polyols are made from natural oils and offer lasting (low temperature) flexibility. The hydrocarbon character imparts water resistance and affinity for a wide range of substrates, including (reinforced) plastics and metal, as required for lightweight construction, potting and assembly. Furthermore, the low electrical conductivity is valuable for demanding electronic applications.

Croda has set challenging Sustainability targets to become Climate, Land and People Positive by 2030. With these ingredients for adhesives, we will demonstrate how sustainability is improved by reducing the carbon footprint of the adhesive, as well as by enabling in-use sustainability benefits. They allow lightweight design and durable solutions for encapsulation, sealing and miniaturisation. On top of the high performance, we contribute to your sustainability needs.
