The Performance that Matters!

For applications that require extra dynamic performance and abrasion resistance, the AndurElite™ prepolymer series is powered by the next generation of ultra high-performance aliphatic diisocyanate. It has a very linear and symmetrical structure with respect to the isocyanate groups, resulting in a highly crystalline hard-segment structure which provides ultra high-performance elastomer properties. Its "aliphatic" nature allows a light and color stable elastomer, which is exceptionally well suited for outdoor applications or for applications in extreme environments.

UV Stability- Yellowing Characteristics

Very little color change after Xenon testing. This stability opens the door for choice of colorants to be used in cast systems with little change over long term UV exposure

Technology

AndurElite™ series materials are powered by Fortimo technology. This technology, developed by Mitsui Chemicals, is based on new aliphatic diisocyanate called Fortimo™ 1,4-H6XDI (trans-1,4-hydrogenated xylylene diisocyanate).
