HS Number: 390720

Ymer™ N90 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™ N90 allows you to fine tune specific properties of your waterborne polyurethane dispersions. It has been specifically designed with a long ethoxylated chain to help add more softness and flexibility in the final product.

Achieve the right softness, stability and flexibility in your PUDs

Optimize your polyurethane dispersions with Ymer™ N90, which is ideal for a range of applications including flexible and abrasion resistant formulations for leather and textiles, and soft-feel coatings for plastics.
