Instrumental Polymer Technologies, LLC is a privately held company which is active in the research, development, production and sales of aliphatic polycarbonate polyols for use in polyurethane formulations. IP TECH is the first company to supply branched aliphatic polycarbonates to this market, providing a new standard in urethane performance. IP TECH is also at the forefront of bringing nanotechnology, and in particular, dendrimeric polymers to the broad markets such as coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers (CASE). It uses a proprietary natural growth process to produce dendrimeric polycarbonate polyols at low cost. The work was performed in collaboration with the Princeton University, Department of Chemistry. The dendrimers have a tough, highly crosslinked aliphatic polycarboante core which contributes high toughness and chemical resistance, whereas the spherical nature and alkylated surface of the dendrimer offer low mix viscosity when mixed with isocyanates in coatings. These products offer the ability to formulate 0VOC, high solids polyurethane coatings which have high performance. The unique evolution polymerization process used to produce the dendrimers makes these dendrimers very cost competitive.
