Achieve best in class durability of your PU based Materials thanks to breakthrough PCD

This is a Past Webinar
Formulating the right PU-based material that can resist to extreme environmental conditions such as high and low temperatures, humidity, stain and chemical aggressions while ensuring durable high performance is a challenge.

If durability is a must-have for your materials formulations, then PCD is the technology you have always been looking for! 


Polycarbonate Diols (PCD) are used for a wide range of polyurethane-based material formulations, providing an extreme durability and a high performance to the final polymer. 


These products offer customizable possibilities for superior & long-term retention of designed performances, with no modification of initial properties after being exposed to harsh environments.
