Crompton Offers New
Waterborne Polyurethanes
● Crompton Corp. has added two new
products to its Witcobond range of
polyurethane dispersions. Witcobond
W-281F, a 40% solid-aliphatic aqueous
polyurethane adhesive that exhibits
high cohesive strength while being
free of organic solvent, forms strong
bonds to many substrates and is an
excellent laminating adhesive for PVC
to a variety of substrates as well as
laminating fabrics to thermoplastic
urethanes. W-281F is also suitable for
formulation in plastic and leather
coatings, particularly for post-application
Witcobond W-290HSC, a highsolids-
content (62%) waterborne
polyurethane dispersion that contains
no organic solvent, exhibits outstanding
yellowing resistance when subject
to end-use processing temperatures as
high as 140°C. W-290HSC’s adhesion
to a variety of substrates, as well as its
high-elongation and high-tensile
strength make it suitable for many
applications where durability and colorfastness
are required, including
plastic and textile coatings. More info:
