Tri-iso distributes a wide range of carbodiimide crosslinkers that allow formulators to produce high quality adhesives. Carbodiimides react with carboxylic acid and amine groups on adhesive resins to connect the resin chains, thereby increasing the molecular weight of the resulting polymer network. Increasing the molecular weight of polymer network improves the strength, chemical resistance, and heat resistance of the finished adhesive Carbodiimides can be used in 1-pack adhesives and provide up to a 90 day pot-life. Carbodiimides can also be used in 2 component adhesive systems, and can react at room temperature.
