4 reasons to use Eternacoll® Polycarbonate Diols in Polyurethane Elastomers

Eternacoll® Polycarbonate Diols are used for high performance Polyurethane elastomers, providing an extreme durability in harsh environments to the final polymer. But how?
  • Reason #1 is the Chemical & hydrolytic stability;
  • Reason #2 is the thermal resistance;
  • Reason #3 is the abrasion resistance;
  • Reason #4 is the retention of mechanical properties.

Eternacoll® Polycarbonate Diols provide higher retention of original properties to Polyurethane Elastomer vs other Polyol benchmarks:
  • 86% retention of mechanical properties after extreme temperature exposure;
  • 91% retention of original properties after harsh hydrolytic and chemical environments;
  • 52% reduction of water absorption;
  • 88% reduction of elastomer volume loss when exposed to harsh abrasion.

The extreme durability provided by Eternacoll® Polycabonate Diols to PU Elastomers makes them suitable for various Polyurethane-based applications, such as: Waterproofing membranes, Oil & Mining PU Cast, Transparent PU applications, PU Electrical Encapsulation.
