The Polyurethanes Technical Conference is a very collaborative organization, working to promote new applications and technology in polyurethanes. Each year, the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry boasts an unbeatable lineup of Technical Sessions. This year, the technical sessions continued to offer more than 80 presentations, including the paper from BioAmber Inc., presented by Bill Coggio. BioAmber Inc.’s paper highlighted the properties that Bio-Based Succinic Acid enables in a wide range of polyester polyols useful in polyurethanes. The data demonstrates that polyol property ranges can be fine-tuned to obtain an excellent combination of properties with superior solvent resistance, compared to adipates and PTMEG based polyurethanes, thus enabling polyurethanes with a unique combination of performance and renewable content.
