This is the second webinar in the series “Polyurethane Adhesive and Sealants”. This session will apply concepts to design and refer to the different types of urethane adhesive and sealants that are commercially available. A comprehensive review of all urethane adhesives types will be presented.
This technical webinar series is designed for chemists that are new to, or experienced in polyurethanes and will show how to use/manipulate the building blocks of urethanes to specific performance characteristics.
Expand upon the major urethane reactions used in urethane adhesives and sealants, including the main polyols, isocyanates, chain extenders and catalysts to make them shelf stable. Present the different types of one and two component urethane adhesives and sealants that are available, how they are made and examples of each type.
One Component Systems:
- Moisture-curing liquid and hot melt urethane adhesives
- Solvent and waterborne urethane adhesives
- Blocked urethane adhesives
- Thermoplastic polyurethane adhesives
- Structural urethane adhesives
- Waterborne urethane adhesives
- “Modified” two-component urethane adhesives
- Filler and filler preparation for use in adhesive and sealant formulations
Anyone with a technical background looking to learn or expand their knowledge of polyurethanes and polyurethane adhesive and sealant applications. Anyone wanting to interact with renowned polyurethane expert on structure/property relationships.
