BASF Launches Polyurethane Resin with High-temperature Stability

BASF-new-resinBASF has launched Elastocoat® C, a polyurethane (PU) resin used in pultrusion technology for high performance profiles. In contrast to other resins, these PU systems exhibit significant advantages for pultrusion speeds at low pull forces and a very high interlaminar shear strength (ILSS) and no emission at the profile.

New Resin with Multiple Application Spheres

With the launch of a new grade Elastocoat® C 6226/107, the product is opening a range of new application spheres.

In contrast to its sister products, it can be reinforced with both glass and carbon fiber. Furthermore, it features low viscosity and a pull force of less than 2kN (Kilonewton).

Temperature Stability Up to 200°C

By using BASF’s catalyst as a basis, this product advancement makes processing temperatures of up to 200°C possible, which opens new fields of use, for example in automotive or construction applications. With this new generation of pultrusion resin, Elastocoat® C 6226/107, BASF is enabling applications that require a high level of temperature resistance, e.g. e-coat processes, along with applications that need a modulus of stability over a wide range of usage temperatures. The material can be manufactured on pultrusion plants suitable for polyurethane with no need for further adjustments.

As Elastocoat ® C 6226/107 is opening a whole new dimension in temperature stability, it has now been recognized by the German FSK – Fachverband Schaumkunststoffe und Polyurethane with the Innovation Award Plastics and Polyurethane 2019.

The award provides us with welcome recognition of our work, while at the same time providing an impetus to see this new product become successfully established on the market. The outstanding teamwork exhibited by research, development and marketing made this success possible. The prize confirms for us that we will be able to tap into new markets by developing the high-temperature system,” says Bert Neuhaus, project manager development at BASF.
