1.  The Invention
Hybrid Nonisocyanate Polyurethane Network Polymers and Composites Formed there form


Title Nonisocyanate Polyurethane
The problem the inventor(s) wanted to solve First industrial technology of PU producing without using isocyanates at any stage of technological and application processes
Description. Nonisocyanate polyurethanes (NIPU) are synthesized by reaction of cyclocarbonate  terminated oligomers and primary amines terminated oligomers without picking out any matters. Usually NIPU  are solvent free compositions
Presentation..Samples of NIPU materials.
Fields of application Protective coatings, monolithic floorings, adhesives, foam, reinforced plastics.
Advantages  Nonporous, low toxic polyurethanes without using dangerous isocyanates. High level of mechanical properties and chemical resistance. No any sensitivity effect at the application. Low temperature curing. High shock and abrasive resistance.

 Stage of development. Production item.
Documentation available: Yes. Full technological documentations, including TDS, MSDS etc.  Brosure.
