Dow Introduces Echelon MU 290 Specialty Isocyanate


Oct 13, 2009

Dow has commercially launched Echelon MU 290 specialty isocyanate, a uretonimine-modified methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI)-based solution for adhesives, sealants, elastomers and coatings applications. Echelon MU 290 is said to offer a number of benefits including improved clarity and greater handling and storage flexibility.

“By expanding our Echelon family with this new product, Dow is demonstrating its commitment to bringing new and differentiated materials for use in adhesives, sealants, coatings and elastomers,” says Janet English, Dow Polyurethanes’ global marketing manager for adhesives, sealants, and elastomers.

From a material handling and usage standpoint, Echelon MU 290 is a liquid product offering improved shelf life and low temperature flexibility, allowing it to be stored more economically and conveniently at room temperature than pure MDI, according to Dow. Its low temperature storage stability alleviates concerns associated with the crystallization of pure MDI during shipping and handling.
