LUPRAGEN API (N-(3-Aminopropyl)imidazole) is a catalyst used in Polyurethanes and Epoxy systems. It can also be used for the modification of epoxy resins and for the preparation of polyurethanes. The pendent imidazole functionality improves the adhesion properties of the resin. It is a colourless to yellowish solid with an amine-like odour.
This product is also used to incorporate the imidazole group onto the polymer backbone in the production of dispersing agent polymers.
It is a low volatility catalyst in the production of molded soft polyurethane foams for automotive applications.
In Epoxy systems, LUPRAGEN® API functions as a mediator between solid pigments and the substrate. Used in polyurethane flexible foams: slabstock and molded, and semi-rigid foams.
Applications for LUPRAGEN API (N-(3-Aminopropyl)imidazole)
- Catalyst for polyurethanes
- Hardener for epoxy resins
- Flexible foam: slabstock, molded
- Semi-rigid foam
- Rigid foam
