Pripol™ 1012
Pripol 1012 is a dimer acid building block with high difunctionality that is suitable for use in polyester and polyamide coatings, adhesives and engineering plastics / elastomers. Due to the high purity of difunctional components, Pripol 1012 produces higher molecular weight polymers with high toughness, good flexibility, and excellent hydrolysis and chemical resistance. *Pripol 1012 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.
