Polyols are the largest volume raw material used in polyurethanes. Cost and Performance are the two biggest factors for determining the best polyol for a specific polyurethane application. The polyol’s reactivity, based on the position of the OH groups, the ester or ether chemistry, the linearity, and the aromatic vs. aliphatic chemistry all play a part in defining PU properties and performance for a particular polyurethane application. This webinar is designed to provide the polyurethane formulator with a fundamental understanding of how these factors should be considered when formulating polyurethanes from a Structure/Property perspective. The webinar content includes: # Discussions of molecular architecture; # Polyol types and their molecular structure : Polyether polyols, Polyester Polyols,  Specialty polyols; # Advantages and Disadvantages of polyol types; # Morphology and molecular motion; # Hydrogen bonding within polyurethanes; # Discussion of specific polyurethane examples and the measurement of their physical properties
