  5. 5. Auxiliary productsJEFFAMINE® polyetheraminesIn RIM reaction injection molding technology, the use of JEFFAMINE® polyetheramines can improve variousphysical characteristics such as thermal, abrasion and impact resistance, tear strength, solvent stability anddynamic fatigue. Similar characteristics are also seen in more standard polyurethane foam systems. Thetypically-used materials are JEFFAMINE® D-2000 and JEFFAMINE® T-5000 amines.JEFFAMINE® polyetheramines, due to their very fast reaction with isocyanates, provide an extremely quick,un-catalyzed exotherm in the foam. This phenomenon can be termed a thermo-kick. This effect is mosthelpful in cold ambient temperatures or where heat losses have to be overcome, such as with coldsubstrates, molds and highly-filled systems. The very rapid primary amine/isocyanate reaction can also beutilized when it is beneficial to build cross linking and thixotropy quickly into the system. The thermo-kick isstrongest with a low molecular weight diamine such as JEFFAMINE® D-230 or JEFFAMINE® D-400 amine,whilst JEFFAMINE® T-403 amine will give a greater degree of cross-linking and a quicker thixotropic effect,as a result being tri-functional and highly branched.JEFFSOL® propylene carbonatePropylene carbonate acts as an excellent solvent for both isocyanate and polyols. It can be used both as acompatibiliser for systems and as a highly effective viscosity depressant.Cleaning solventsHuntsman has developed a range of environmentally-friendly, biodegradable, high solvency power solvents,which can be efficiently used in the polyurethane industry. Solvent C 500 is an excellent solvent system toreduce the viscosity of formulations, the product has also proven to be successful as a cleaner solvent forisocyanate prepolymers. Resin Cleaner KM was developed for the removal of uncured or partially curedpolyurethane compounds from tools, mixing heads or for flushing lines. Solvent 1581 is a low-VOC solventsystem with high solvency power developed for use in cleaning applications.Specialty catalyst blendsIn addition to the standard products, a range of specialty amine catalysts has been formulated to meetspecific technical requirements. Additional formulated catalyst blends may be produced to satisfy customerneeds. 5
