Townsend Chemicals produces Thermoplastic Polyurethanes, Polymeric Plasticisers, Polyester Polyols and Urethane Adducts. We offer the 'building blocks' required for the manufacturing of a wide range of finished products.
Thermoplastic Polyurethanes (TPU) are a versatile elastomer that are characterised by their flexibility, toughness and abrasion resistance. Processing is generally by injection moulding or extrusion and a wide variety of shapes and sizes can be manufactured. The raw materials available to make these TPU's are numerous and we work closely with our stakeholders to ensure the right balance of performance and cost are engineered into the grades we make.
Polymeric Plasticisers are high molecular weight polymers that are used to soften and flexibilise rubber and PVC. Due to their high molecular they have excellent permanence and resistance to oils, greases and solvents.
Polyester Polyols are used in applications from cast polyurethane elastomers to polyurethane coatings to polyurethane coatings. Depending on the application we should have a polyester polyol to meet your requirements and if we don't we are able to develop a grade that suits.
Urethane Adducts are used to make polyurethane adhesives. The glues made from urethane adducts exhibit flexibility and high bond strength.
Australian owned and manufactured we are keen to support local businesses. We are happy to supply samples and technical assistance to ensure the success of projects.
