The NISSO-Polybutadiene products of NIPPON SODA are comprised of a large portfolio of liquid polybutadienes with an extraordinarily high 1,2-vinyl content. NISSO offers homopolymers of butadiene and modified polybutadiene grades with a wide range of molecular weights. The modified grades encompass hydrogenated polybutadienes, both-end hydroxyl- and urethane (meth)acrylate terminated polybutadienes and epoxidized polybutadienes. These unique polymers are very hydrophobic and possess low glass transition temperature as well as very good electrical resistance.
Liquid polybutadienes are used in a wide range of industrial applications, such as resin modifiers, co-agents in rubber, adhesives, TPU elastomers, plasticizers, defoaming agents and many more.
