Pripol™ is a range of dimer diacid and diols that are used in adhesives, coatings and engineering plastics to impart flexibility, hydrophobicity and adhesion to difficult substrates.
Our Pripol™ dimer diacid improve chemical properties of polymer resins like polyesters, polyamides and epoxies, due to their branched structure, hydrocarbon character and dicarboxylic functionality, which provides flexibility to resins, excellent hydrophobicity, adhesion to a wide range of substrates and low moisture absorption.
These grades are also widely approved for food contact applications, as it brings bio-based* formulations, improved melt flow and substrate wetting, excellent hydrolytic stability, chemical resistance and low VOC emission.
Pripols can also be used to replace (fully or partially) existing standard diols from the market in polyesters which can then be used in PU and PUD formulations or COPA/COPE.
