Achieve best in class durability of your PU based Coatings and Adhesives thanks to breakthrough PCD

This is a Past Webinar
Formulating the right PU-based coating or adhesive that can resist to extreme environmental conditions such as high & low temperatures, humidity, stain and chemical aggressions while ensuring long-term high performance and adhesion properties is a challenge.

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

Polycarbonate Diols (PCD) are used for a wide range of polyurethane-based coating & adhesive 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.
