Perstorp to present new products at ECS 2011

Many of Perstorp's products are used in resins for coatings and inks and formulated coatings and adhesives. Perstorp says among its portfolio of materials and skills, the company's offer for polyurethane-based systems is at the sector's forefront. This includes products that can be used directly in formulations. For example Tolonate aliphatic polyisocyanates, which are crosslinkers for polyurethane coatings and adhesives, and Capa polycaprolactones, which reduce the need for solvents thanks to their exceptionally low viscosity, while achieving very good abrasion resistance and flexibility at low temperatures.It also includes building blocks for polyurethane dispersions (PUD), ranging from dispersing monomers (Bis-MPA, Ymer N120), polyols (Oxymer polycarbonate diols and Capa polycaprolactones) and isocyanate monomers (HDI, IPDI, TDI).Furthermore, Perstorp has launched Voxtar, the world's first pentaerythritol platform based on renewable raw materials and energy. According to the company, Voxtar cuts the carbon footprint by 65 %.Based on patented technology, the Easaqua grades are self-emulsifiable polyisocyanates, used as crosslinkers of effective eco-friendly waterborne polyurethane alternatives to conventional solvent-based coatings. A new grade will be introduced during the show.Perstorp says it is committed to supporting its customers' growth, and regularly invests to sustain its leadership positions via doubling capacity of Capa polycaprolactones and increasing production capacity in HDI derivatives, (Tolonate and Easaqua ranges).
