Converge polyols protect wooden decks and furniture from water damage.

Superior performance and sustainability with Converge polyols

Our Converge® polyols business offers our industrial customers the materials to create products that benefit and improve the lives of people around the world. Whether incorporated into part of food packaging or embedded in a heart valve, polyols are an important ingredient of modern life.

Converge® polyols offer polyurethane coating formulators the ability to develop coatings with a high degree of hardness while maintaining sufficient flexibility. The polycarbonate backbone offers excellent environmental, chemical, and UV resistance.

Coil Coatings

Converge polyols exhibit an excellent balance of hardness and flexibility, enhance scratch and abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, and allow for good post-coating formability of coil coatings – and make a good candidate for household appliance and industrial applications.

Can Coatings

Converge polyols offer a non-BPA solution for coatings applied to the interior and exterior of food, beverage, and industrial cans, and protect the contents from contamination due to contact with metal surfaces.

Automotive Coatings

In automotive applications, Converge polyols offer excellent mechanical and chemical resistance for protective primers, decorative topcoats, and interior finishes. The pure aliphatic carbonate backbone imparts high gloss, good UV and weathering resistance, and offers excellent resistance.

Plastic Coatings

Converge polyols are an excellent additive to support increased light-weighting and impact resistance in automotive applications, with improved scratch, wear and weathering resistance.

Wood Coatings/ Polyurethane Dispersions

Converge polyols can bring about improved hardness, chemical and stain resistance, and weatherability in both solvent-based and water-based systems, which are prevalent in wood coatings, from high performance joinery to parquet flooring.

Textile/ Leather Coating/ Polyurethane Dispersion

Systems containing Converge polyols offer enhanced chemical and hydrolysis resistance while maintaining the desired color fastness. Converge polyols can be used in both water-based polyurethane dispersions and solvent-based formulations, improving the performance of textile-based products, such as synthetic leather, exterior awnings, or weather-resistant fabric.
