High Temperature Resistance Urethanes

High service temperature polyurethane compositions 
US 6103851

ABSTRACT
The invention is polyurethane compositions useful in high temperature service environments comprising A) i) one or more polyols having hydroxyl functionality of 3.0 or greater and a weight average molecular weight of about 2000 to about 6000 wherein the polyols are the reaction product of an initiator or mixture of initiators having an average functionality of 4 or greater and one or more alkylene oxides; or ii) a) one or more polyols having hydroxyl functionality of 3.0 or greater and weight average molecular weight of greater than about 4000 wherein the polyols are the reaction product of an initiator or mixture of initiators having an average functionality of 4 or greater and one or more alkylene oxides, and b) one or more crosslinkers having an equivalent weight of about 200 or less; B) an organic isocyanate; and C) a catalyst for the reaction of an isocyanate with an active hydrogen containing compound; wherein the ratio of isocyanate moieties to active hydrogen containing moieties is from about 0.9:1.0 to about 1.5:1.0. The compositions of the invention can be processed at relatively low temperatures to form high heat service temperature compositions useful as adhesives, sealants, encapsulants, gaskets or elastomers.
