Polyester polyols are aromatic and aliphatic dicarboxylic acid which are derived from terephthalic and phthalic acids. It is widely used for providing high strength. Polyester based polyols provide ortho- ester linkage which enhance hydrolytic stability of the adhesion. Also, it helps in improving the resistance and abrasion process. The report covers application areas such as coating, adhesive, sealants, elastomers, and others.
Polyester based polyurethane coatings are primarily used for enhancing the durability and aesthetics of wood. As these coatings are extremely resistant to heat, moisture, and damage, they are used for frozen food packaging, retort pouches, food and pharmaceutical packaging. Furthermore, it is also9 used for automotive coatings to protect the surface against corrosion, weather, and wear & tear. Also, adhesives have high performance emulsion adhesion, which are more durable and provides high strength bond. Furthermore, it also act as a better moisture resistance compared to other polyols; this in turn is the major cause behind its increasing demand from industries such as furniture, flooring & plywood, windows & doors, and cabinets among others. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of XX.X% during 2014-2019.
