TDI Based Adhesives
A two component, hydroxyl terminated polyurethane, which requires crosslinking with isocyanate to improve heat resistance. These are ideal for shoe manufacture and fabric lamination. Typical solvents are ketones, esters and THF.
MDI Based Adhesives
A one component adhesive, with good heat resistance and which may not require crosslinking. Typical solvents are ketones and THF.
The RE-ADD polyurethane adhesive range varies from soft slow crystallising grades to fast crystallising grades which
provide immediate high green strength.
These high performance adhesive raw materials provide outstanding flexibility, varying crystallisation rates and
excellent bond strength. Contact Townsend Chemicals to find out how they can improve your product.
