  • Patent number: 4413111
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a process for the preparation of an isocyanate-terminated prepolymer having a content of unreacted diisocyanate of less than about 2% by weight, preferably less than about 1% by weight, based on the weight of the isocyanate-terminated prepolymer, and containing internal urethane groups based on 4,4'-diisocyanato-dicyclohexyl-methane by(a) preparing an OH-terminated prepolymer from(i) a high molecular weight polyol component, and/or(ii) a low molecular weight isocyanate-reactive component, and(iii) a polyisocyanate component comprising 4,4'-diisocyanato-dicyclohexyl-methaneat an NCO/OH equivalent ratio of about 0.5:1 to 0.9:1;(b) forming the isocyanate-terminated prepolymer by reacting the OH-terminated prepolymer with a polyisocyanate other than 4,4'-diisocyanato-dicyclohexyl-methane containing aromatically-, aliphatically- and/or cycloaliphatically-bound isocyanate groups at an NCO:OH equivalent ratio, based on the free -OH groups of component (a), of about 1.

  • Patent number: 4383070
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to an organic polyurethane composition having a solids content of about 10 to 100 weight percent which comprises(1) isocyanate-terminated prepolymers which are prepared by reacting reaction products of the phosgenation of aniline-formaldehyde condensates containing specific ratios of isomers and homologues with polyether polyols containing at least two hydroxyl groups and at least one tertiary nitrogen atom and, optionally, an additional polyol which does not contain a tertiary nitrogen atom and optionally,(2) a monoisocyanate comprising a member selected from para-toluenesulfonyl isocyanate and the reaction product of 2,4- or 2,6-toluene diisocyanate or mixtures thereof with specific monoalcohols.The present invention is also directed to the coatings produced from the polyurethane compositions, optionally containing pigments.
