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.

Polycarbonate-based Polyurethane Prepolymers for polyurethane elastomers roll covers: How to improve performance and endurance

If a polyurethane is adequately formulated and applied for the operating conditions, hardness and other mechanical properties will be stable and will not affect performance. For this, roll covers made from polyurethane have always offered many advantages. They are now significantly upgraded with polyurethane elastomers integrating the ETERNATHANE® polycarbonate-based prepolymers technology: they are very resistant to friction & heat, as well as solvents and hydrolysis.
