COLLABORATION

APPLICATION

Experience the quality that


Stepan materials bring to
your end-use product

Collaborative screening is the key to performance.


Stepan offers complete screening of our polyols in your application, a
service that our customers truly value. You provide the formulation, we
test it using our raw materials and deliver the performance results to
you. It is an efficient way to experience the quality that Stepan materials
bring to your end-use product while getting the benefit of knowing your
formulation has been tested to the highest standard. Stepan ensures that
confidentiality issues are respected throughout all stages of the process.

At Stepan, formulation represents


opportunities for innovation.
We excel at innovation: our global Research and Development team
over 150 people strongis constantly striving to improve existing
products and develop new answers to formulation challenges. While our
synthesis techniques and testing abilities are always evolving, we remain
focused on the needs of our customers. This leads to successful new
product development.

Stepanpol polyester
polyols allow formulators
the versatility in PUR hot
melt adhesive applications
to improve green strength,
creep resistance, substrate
bonding profiles and to
modify open time.
Applications include fabric
laminating, woodworking
and product assembly.

Stepanpol delivers
superior hydrolytic
stability under acidic and
basic conditions, improves
flexibility, extends pot life
and promotes adhesion to
a variety of commonly
used substrates.

One component foam


(OCF) formulators choose
Stepanpol aromatic
polyester polyols for in-can
stability, fire retardancy,
adhesion to a variety of
substrates and costeffectiveness.

STEPANPOL aromatic polyester


polyols are specifically engineered
to meet the diverse and demanding
requirements of the C.A.S.E.
industry. Stepan has developed a
line of high quality polyester polyols
based on ortho-ester linkages. By
using phthalic anhydride as the
building block, Stepan polyols
deliver enhanced hydrolytic stability
and adhesion to diverse substrates
while improving abrasion resistance
and overall hardness. Common end
uses include liquid and hot melt
urethane adhesives, flexible
packaging, insulating sealants,
polyurethane dispersions,
thermalbreak, cast elastomers,
and energy-cure and conventionalcure coatings.

The addition of Stepanpol


polyester polyols enhances
mechanical properties
resulting in higher quality
foams, less scrap, and
easier fabrication. This
allows for the manufacture
of more durable furniture,
and in turn, more satisfied
customers.

The small, regular foam


cells produced by using
Stepanpol adipate
polyols can filter air, fluids,
and particulates in
consumer, medical, and
industrial applications.

Our patented chemistry


increases the bonding
strength of foam to textile
and nonwoven fabrics. The
increased adhesion enables
better shaping and provides
the cushioning, vibration
and sound reduction
properties essential for
automotive headliners.

Stepan supplies both aromatic


and aliphatic polyester polyols
for use in flexible slabstock
polyurethane foam applications.
Stepanpol aromatic polyester
polyols improve flame lamination
bond strength and increase
mechanical properties in
polyether foams. Our aliphatic
polyester polyol product line
contains branched adipate
polyols designed for specialty
polyester foams.

Typical End Uses

Spray Insulation

Boardstock Insulation

appliance insulation

Stepans unique chemistry


leads to superior insulation
and flammability resistance,
critical requirements in the
construction industry. Spray
formulations containing
STEPANPOL polyols are
also easier to process due
to low polyol viscosity and
improved blowing agent
solubility.

PIR foams made with


STEPANPOL polyester
polyol deliver superior
insulating performance,
applied economics and
reliability. This results
from the combination of
our proprietary technology,
application expertise, and
world-class manufacturing
practices.

STEPANPOL polyols
produce PUR foams
with finer cell structures
and improved flow. This
enables manufacturers to
increase insulating value
while reducing cost.

Stepan is the global leader in the


production and sale of aromatic
polyester polyols for use in rigid
polyisocyanurate and polyurethane
foams. The largest end use for
Stepan rigid aromatic polyester
polyols is in applications where
insulation, flammability, and
structural performance are most
important. These polyols contain
innovative Stepan technology that
improves foam processing and
insulating performance to create
value in end use applications.
Stepans aromatic polyester polyol
business uses a vertical integration
model, world-class manufacturing
and a global supply chain to deliver
quality and reliability.
