Neuthane 300 Series TDI – PPG Ether Prepolymers (80 - 95 Shore A)

Properties

The Neuthane 300 series of TDI-PPG ether prepolymers are designed to offer a reasonable level of physical properties at a price advantage over TDI–PTMEG systems.

They offer:

  • a reasonable level of physical properties
  • low cost
  • good hydrolysis resistance
  • ease of use
  • low viscosity

Typical Applications

  • Dunnage
  • Non-dynamic roller coverings (e.g. conveyor rollers for the steel industry)
  • Scraper blades (e.g. snow plough blades)
  • Wheels (low load)

Processing can be by hand or by dispensing machine

Hand Processing

  • Melt prepolymer at 50-60°C for 12-24 hours
  • Heat the prepolymer and curative to the recommended temperature
  • Add pigments and Antifoam, as applicable,whilst mixing
  • It is recommended that air be removed from the prepolymer under vacuum prior to addition of the curative
  • Add the curative and thoroughly mix ensuring that no unmixed material is left on the
    container sides (if necessary the mixcan be transferred to a second clean container and mixed again)
  • Remove air under vacuum
  • Cast into moulds, preheated to the recommended temperature
  • Cure as recommended

Processing Considerations

  • Avoid prolonged storage of prepolymers at elevated temperatures.
  • This will result in low hardness and lower properties of the cured materialAvoid moisture contamination of all materials
  • Part used containers should be flushed with dry nitrogen and resealed immediately after use
  • The development of cure is longer than for PTMEG systems.
  • Rapid temperature changes during the early stage of cure should be avoided

Alternatives

  • Dynamic / Resilience – Neuthane 100 [TDI-PTMEG] or Neuthane 600 [MDI-PTMEG]
  • Solvents / Abrasion – ester based systems should be considered Neuthane 200 [TDI] or Neuthane 700 [MDI]
  • Humid / Wet – MDI or Aliphatic Isocyanate based systems should be considered: Neuthane 600 [MDI] or Neuthane 500 [Aliphatic]
