Velvetol® products are widely utilized in polyurethane systems. It is used in thermoplastic polyurethanes, dispersions, adhesives and sealants. It supports applications ranging from molded components of mining and industrial goods to breathable apparel. It is suitable for coatings for the furniture and automotive industries.

The features and benefits of Velvetol® include:

  • Sustainable, 100% bio-based raw materials
  • Availability in molecular weights from 250-2700 Dalton
  • Low viscosity for ease of processing
  • Very good mechanical and dynamic properties. It includes high levels of elasticity and abrasion resistance
  • Good hydrolysis resistance
  • Exceptional flexibility at low temperatures
  • Made in Germany

Our distribution agreement with Nordmann is characterized by this shared commitment to sustainability. Both our companies are committed to working together to develop innovative solutions that contribute to a sustainable future.
