Pluracol® CASE Polyols

Polyols

 

The CASE acronym refers to the polyurethane raw material market involving Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants, and Elastomers. Given the diversity of customer uses, polyols for CASE applications are often borrowed from the other urethane areas, especially flexible foam and molded seating. To qualify as a CASE diol, triol, or tetrol, the polyol should have water content below 0.05% and a Na&K in the range of 10 ppm or below. Some customers choose to slightly acidify the polyols prior to prepolymer synthesis. These specifications originate from the stricter requirements of isocyanate prepolymer manufacturing and the associated shelf stability issues. Above 2000 MW, many CASE polyols have an ethylene oxide (EO)-cap, thus creating a primary hydroxyl group. The unhindered EO-cap facilitates faster reactivity and better step-wise addition of polyol during the reaction of a 2-component urethane system.
