Polyurethane Specialties

The Polyderm Polyurethane series is based on the reaction of cosmetic polyols, esters, silicones and amines with Isophorone Diisocyanate, resulting in many unique properties including enhanced adhesion durability, film forming and thermal and chemical stability.

A range of esters, tertiary amines, silicone copolyols, polyethers and ethoxylated alcohols reacted with a IPDI diisocyanate result in unique polymers with enhanced emolliency, conditioning, film forming and rheology modifying properties.
