Gist”: A PU prepolymer is capped with Michael accepting groups and then cured with a dithiol

Why it is interesting: This invention is about sulphur containing PU sealants with properties acceptable for the aerospace industry. A bis(vinylsulfonyl)- terminated urethane-polythioether prepolymer is prepared according to the scheme below. The prepolymer can then be cured with a dithiol-ended polyether, catalysed by a tertiary amine.  The compositions have an extended pot life and the curing rate can be controlled by using an encapsulated tert-amine as a controlled-release catalyst.
