Ingevity pushes boundaries of polyurethane performance with Capa® LT, a new Capa polyol with extended low temperature performance
NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 20, 2023 – Ingevity Corporation (NYSE:NGVT) will launch its new range of polycaprolactone products designed to push the low temperature boundaries of polyurethane (PU) performance during a webinar hosted by Urethanes Technology on Thursday, February 23, 2023, at 11 a.m. ET. Dr. Scott Phillips, technical market development manager, will present Ingevity’s Capa® LT technology and its potential end-use applications.
Extending the low temperature limit performance of PU materials has a wide variety of commercial opportunities in transportation, aerospace, footwear, manufacturing, construction and medical markets. The ability to operate at both low and high temperatures has value in a host of end-uses from industrial wheels and rollers, automotive bushings, mechanical seals, to snow sport and other outdoor footwear.
“The introduction of Capa LT to our polycaprolactone portfolio addresses a gap in the market and provides solutions to meet customer challenges,” said Joel Neale, commercial director for Engineered Polymers at Ingevity. “Additionally, Capa LT reduces the dependency on polytetramethylene glycol (PTMEG) technology, which has recently faced supply challenges and forced PU producers to find alternatives.”
Organized and moderated by Urethanes Technology, the webinar will feature a presentation followed by a Q&A session. To register for the webinar and learn more about Capa LT, visit the registration link.
