Blocked Isocyanates

DESCRIPTION

Leeson Polyurethanes Ltd. produce a range of blocked isocyanate systems. The range aims to overcome some of the limitations with traditional PU technology, namely:

TRADITIONAL LIMITATIONS OF PU TECHNOLOGY

  • Stability in 1K systems
  • Pot life restrictions in 2K systems
  • Sensitivity to moisture, both ambient and trace levels in raw materials
  • Increasing concern regarding free isocyanate levels in systems

BENEFITS OF LEESON’S BLOCKED ISOCYANATE RANGE

  • A range of blocking agents available to give different unblocking temperatures
  • Aliphatic based technology, giving excellent UV colour stability
  • Flexible Formulation approach, offering tailored solutions to customers
  • Products compatible with polyester, urethane and acrylic resins
  • Range of DMP based technology offers lower unblocking temperatures

FURTHER INFORMATION

The Leeson Polyurethane range includes 4 blocking agents, allowing customers to choose the temperature (and also the isocyanates), they wish to use. Detailed below are the 4 blocking agents used within our range.

 Blocking Agent Unblocking Range (°C)
 Diethyl malonate (DEM) 100-120
Dimethyl pyrazole (DMP) 110-120
Methylethyl ketoxime (MEKO) 140-160
 ε-Caprolactam (ε-CAP) 160-180

HOW DOES THE TECHNOLOGY WORK?

During manufacture, we react the blocking agent onto the isocyanate.  This gives an inert and non hazardous material, at standard ambient temperatures.

The blocked isocyanate can be compounded into suitable coating systems, which are applied and dried.  Once cured at the correct unblocking temperature, the isocyanate is able to react with the functional co-binder polymer, to give a final cross linking cure.
