Pripol™ 1006
As a high difunctional dimer acid building block, Pripol 1006 allows the production of high molecular weight polymers, bringing excellent mechanical strength to polyester and polyamide coatings, adhesive, and elastomer formulations. Pripol 1006 is distilled & hydrogenated, and also provides good colour and colour stability in addition to water repellency, flexibility and thermo-oxidative stability. Also available with a wide range of food contact approvals. *Pripol 1006 is an ISCC PLUS certified product which is truly bio-based. The vegetable oil bio-based content comes from sustainable ISCC certified sources (mass balance), supporting the sourcing of sustainable vegetable oil.
