PolyTHF® - Polytetrahydrofuran

PolyTHF® is a colourless, clear liquid (lower molecular weights) or white, waxy solid at room temperature. It will melt to yield a co lourless, clear liquid. It is soluble in many conventional organic solvents, partly infinitely mixable. It is practically insoluble in water.

PolyTHF® is also an important intermediate in manufacturing thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers (TPU). These products are used for highly abrasion-resistant and flexible hoses, films and cable sheathing. Other applications include thermo-plastic polyetheresters, polyetheramide and cast polyurethane elastomers, provenin their use for skateboard wheels and inline skates.

PolyTHF_flowchart

PolyTHF® is a polymer created by linking a series of identical units (=monomers) together, thus forming a chain.

The unit is tetrahydrofuran (THF); water (H-O-H) caps the ends.
