Emery Oleochemicals to Showcase Latest Research on Azelate-Based Polyester Polyols at 2019 Western Coatings Symposium

Emery Oleochemicals, a world-leading, natural-based specialty chemicals manufacturer and the largest global producer of azelaic acid, is pleased to announce that its Eco-Friendly Polyols business platform will showcase its latest coatings product and application development research at the 2019 Western Coatings Symposium being held in Las Vegas, NV, USA, from October 20-23.

On Monday, October 21st at 10:15 am in Room Versailles 1/2, Eric Geiger, Emery’s Technology Manager, will present “Design Considerations for the Selection, Use and Formulation of a Polyurethane Coating Using Azelate-Based Polyester Polyols”. Plan to attend to learn how azelate-based polyester polyols provide unique physical properties and performance benefits to subsequent polyurethane polymers that incorporate them. These polyols offer several performance benefits of interest to formulators based on structure-property considerations such as the odd-even effect, the aliphatic nature of their structures, and the consequent polarity contribution of the carbonyl groups that define the polyester polyol composition. Key benefits include a diverse hydrophobic characteristic as well as improved chemical resistance.
