Polyurethanes are one of the most versatile chemistries used in many adhesive applications due to their outstanding ability to bond a variety of substrates in both rigid and flexible applications. With versatility, however, comes complexity. Optimization of urethane technology is enhanced by a thorough understanding of the reactions between isocyanates, diols, chain extenders and the resulting morphology.
This short course covers the chemistry and technology behind 1 and 2 part polyurethane adhesives and sealants including markets, raw materials, reactions, formulating, fundamentals of adhesion, polymer science and physical testing. The instruction by experts in the field, discussions and networking of peers, suppliers, and manufacturers present an opportunity to advance your knowledge on how to design, select, apply and trouble shoot polyurethane adhesives and ultimately add to your bottom line.
