Advancing Adhesives: Bio-Based Succinic Acid Polyester Polyols

Bill Coggio demonstrates value-added performance benefits and formulation flexibility within bio-based systems for polyurethanes and coatings

June's issue of Adhesives & Sealants Industry (ASI) Magazine features the work of BioAmber Inc.'s own Bill Coggio. In this detailed technical article, Bill discusses positive anomalous behavior formulators can exploit by using bio-based succinate polyols. He shares concrete evidence that bio-based systems provide improved hardness and solvent and abrasion resistance for more durable polyurethanes. These modified properties open up the formulation window for polyurethane systems that are not only good for the environment, but are value-added formulations tools that can legitimately eliminate some performance trade-offs over adipate systems.
