Gist”: A polyester polyol is prepared from a caboxylic acid-modified PDMS and a polyether diol.

Why it is interesting: A polyester polyol is prepared form a linear polydimethylsiloxane end-capped with carboxylic acid groups and having a molecular weight between about 500 and 4000 together with a polytetramethyleneether glycol with MW of 500 to 2000, such that the PDMS content is about 40% . The use of this polyol in polyurethane elastomers results in modified surface characteristics like reduced tackiness. The invention mentions fibers and films as potential applications, but this could be an interesting polyol for many other applications as well. Interesting idea but probably not new.  Only one claim appears to have survived the filing process.
