 Data Sheet


This high performance PTMEG polyether system is one of a family of polymer systems developed by Northstar Polymers for demanding work environments.  Urethane elastomers molded with this system exhibit high rebound or “High Energy”.  The high rebound combined with its low coefficient of friction, yields elastomers with outstanding abrasion resistance.  They also meet the requirements of 21 CFR 177.1680, FDA direct dry food contact.  This combination of features makes elastomers molded from MGB-A90A perfect for many applications including the handling of mined materials, wood chips, grain, gravel, sand, and other very fine particle-size, sliding commodities, and many custom applications.  This product is recommended for long-term use in constant aqueous environments.

The actual mixing ratio at the operation may need to be adjusted based on the actual stoichiometric ratio calculation.  For machine mixing, calibration of the metering system is recommended before the new batch of raw material is used.
