Lupranate® Core PMDI Product Line


Polymeric-MDI (PMDI) is a brown, temperature-stable liquid. PMDI contains a mixture of polyaromatic isocyanates including 2-ring (MMDI), 3-ring, and higher species. As the amount of 3-ring and higher species increases, the functionality and viscosity of the PMDI also increase.
