Gist”: Sulfur-containing polyformal polyols are prepolymerized with aliphatic diisocyanates and then cured with aromatic amines.

Why it is interesting: Sulfur-containing polyformal polyols are prepared from thiodiglycol and paraformaldehyde using acidic catalysis.  The polyols are then reacted with 4,4′-dicylcohexyl diisocyanate (H12MDI) to form a prepolymer which is subsequently cured with an aromatic amine like dimethylthiotoluenediamine. The resulting material is water and fuel resistant and can be used as a sealant in the aerospace industry.
