INVISTA has introduced a new family of aliphatic ester polyols under the brand TERRIN™. The polyols are available for samples and commercial use after successfully undergoing its first commercial trial at INVISTA’s Wilmington, N.C., manufacturing facility. All products in the series have at least 50% recycled content, with some containing renewable content, as well.
TERRIN™ polyols are reportedly a cost-effective alternative to standard polyether and polyester polyols. The company plans to carry out additional commercial trials at its Wilmington site and eventually another site located in Texas.
