Dow Launches VORAPEL, Moisture and Chemical Repellant Polyols for Coatings

November 30, -0001

Dow Polyurethanes has created VORAPEL Moisture and Chemical Repellant Polyols, a novel new family of hydrophobic polyols for applications that require increased moisture and chemical resistance, including infrastructure, secondary containment, chemical tanks and electronic components.

Designed to meet the demand for high-performance, moisture-resistant coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE) polyurethanes, VORAPEL Polyols are low viscosity, clear liquids that can be tailored to a wide range of molecular weight and functionality.

VORAPEL Polyols offers the following advantages outstanding mechanical performance, resistance to a broad range of chemicals, including organic solvents, hydrocarbon fuels and inorganic acids, low viscosity for processing and storage freedom and broad formulation compatibility with other polyols and chain extenders.

The low viscosity and miscibility with multiple families of polyols help contribute to excellent wettability and moisture resistance for coatings and adhesives used in electronic components, accordig to the company.
