Hybrid Polyurethane Elastomer

Patent Title:  PROCESS FOR PRODUCING ELASTOMERS

 Number/Link: WO2018069348 (German)

Applicant/Assignee:  Covestro

Gist”: Unsaturated polycarbonate polyols are reacted with isocyanates together with a peroxide

Why it is interesting: Unsaturated polyethercarbonate polyols are prepared by reacting alkyleneoxides (e.g. PO) together with carbondioxide and an unsaturated monomer like a glycidylether or -ester or cyclooctadienemonoepoxide. These polyols can then be reacted with isocyanates in the presence of  a free-radical initiator like an peroxide. The resulting material can then be crosslinked in a separate step. The hybrid elastomers are said to have improved tensile properties at same or similar hardness.
