HS Number: 390720

Ymer™ N120 is a polymeric nonionic dispersing monomer containing two primary hydroxyl groups which are incorporated in the polymer and can be used to disperse the polymer (polyurethanes, alkyds and polyesters) in water. Ymer™ N120 is ideal for fine tuning the specific properties of your waterborne polyurethane dispersions while maintaining stability. It has a well-balanced ethoxylated chain length for choosing the exact properties you require, from hard and rigid to soft and flexible.

Precise performance for waterborne PUDs

Meet your customers’ exact polyurethane dispersion requirements with Ymer™ N120. This product enables flexible yet hard formulations for the final product.
