HS Number: 390720

Ymer™ N180 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™ N180 can help you meet your customers’ specific requirements when it comes to the properties of your polyurethane dispersions. It has been designed with a short ethoxylated chain, which makes it perfect for improving dispersibility or hardness.

Improve the hardness and durability of your PUDs

By using Ymer™ N180, it’s possible to enhance the hardness and durability in solvent-free polyurethane dispersions while minimizing the level of harmful amines in production. This grade is optimal for durable wood flooring coatings and weather resistant coatings for outdoor surfaces.
