Mitsui launches two new "One-of-a-Kind” polyurethanes

The launch is scheduled for April 2015. The Japanese company said that production will commence at existing facilities. From August 2016, the company will prepare for large-scale production by using a co-production isocyanate monomer plant (production capacity total 2,000t/annual) at Omuta Works (Fukuoka Prefecture) and at a new facility for derivatives within the Nagoya Works. The company will expand facilities in phases to meet increased demand.Product Fortimo StaBiO Form 1,4-Bis (isocyanatomethyl) cyclohexane (1,4-H6XDI?and polyurethane elastomer material Polyisocyanate from 1,5-Pentamethylene diisocyanate?PDI? Characteristics   Elasticity, durability, and heat resistance superior to current isocyanates Short molding time for polyurethane elastomer (thermoplastic polyurethane and thermosetting polyurethane) Non-yellowing High reactivity compared to 1,6-Hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI) Improved gloss and improved chemical and abrasion resistance of paints and adhesives Non yellowing 70% bio-mass Uses Automotive use elastomers, clothing use elastic fibers, medical tubes, and high durability industrial materials, etc. Automotive use paints, plastic paints, adhesives, etc.   Mitsui Chemicals says it will continue to reinforce its product selection of world's firsts and "one-of-a-kind” m-Xylylene diisocyanate?XDI? and Norbornane diisocyanate?NBD?including derivatives.
