Novel Easy-To-Use Cast Elastomers for Heavy Duty Applications
To give parts producers extra manufacturing flexibility, Huntsman has developed a new range of easy-to-use (ETU) cast PU elastomers that offer a wide processing window. TECNOTHANE® ETU 1617G elastomer, the first of the ETU range, is a 3K system available from Shore hardness A45 to D60.
TECNOTHANE® ETU elastomers are compatible with standard manufacturing equipment, are easy to control and are tolerant to process temperature variations. They also deliver excellent part-to-part consistency, without post-curing steps – helping to reduce costs and scrap rates.

Enabling Effective Coatings Formulations to Improve the Durability of Assets
Pipe and tank coatings can last between 8-20 years under normal conditions. However, this can be reduced by as much as 50% when subjected to high temperature, aggressive chemicals, or high pressures. The durability of your coatings can have a direct impact on the service life of your assets, leading to more inspections, higher maintenance costs, and downtime. In many cases this means thousands (and sometimes millions) of dollars spent every year to keep your assets running.
In this webinar, our Coatings Technology Manager Dr. Alex Dureault will introduce you to solutions that can improve heavy duty formulations under a variety of conditions, while providing outstanding protection. We will also showcase how our components enable different types of formulations that give your customers significant long-term savings and greater assurance.
