Home, Water Base Polyurethane Manufacturer
Our polyurethane polymers provide the coating and adhesive formulator and end user an environmentally responsible, low V.O.C. alternative to solvent-borne products for high performance applications.
For over 15 years Bond Polymers International has manufactured a wide variety of waterborne polyurethane products for use in the coating, adhesive, textile, leather, and graphic arts industries. We are ISO 9001:2008 certified.
N-Methyl-2-Pyrrolidone (NMP) is the most common co-solvent used in the manufacture of waterborne polyurethane dispersion. The unique properties of NMP aid in both the processing of the polyurethane dispersions as well as the film formation of the applied polyurethane coating.
Waterborne Polyurethane Products Page
Our polyurethane dispersions range from very soft and flexible films to very hard and abrasion resistant films. The following dispersion table provides technical information for several of our polyurethane dispersions.
Water-Based Polyurethanes For Adhesive Applications
Water based Polyurethane Dispersions make excellent adhesives. Suitable water based polyurethane adhesive grades range in hardness from very soft and tacky to non-tacky heat sealable grades.
Water-Based Polyurethanes For Industrial Coatings Applications
All five are aliphatic polyester water based polyurethane resins and all contain NMP co-solvent. These water based polyurethane resins are generally quite compatible with a wide range of acrylic emulsions commonly used in water based industrial coatings. By varying the ratio between the higher performing water based polyurethane resin and an economical acrylic emulsion a formulator can strike the appropriate cost/performance balance for a specific application.
Waterborne Polyurethane for PVC
Water based Urethane Dispersions make excellent PVC Vinyl coatings. Suitable grades are inherently flexible (no plasticizers that volatize or migrate over time), have superior tensile properties, and have excellent abrasion resistance.
BONDTHANE™ Self Crosslinking Waterborne Polyurethanes
BONDTHANE™ UD-620 This relatively hard self crosslinking polyurethane is ideally suited for hard, clear or pigmented coatings for rigid plastics, wood, glass or ceramic tile.
BPI Introduces Its Newest Soft-feel Polyurethane Polymer
Bondthane™ UD-375 is a high solids aliphatic waterborne polyurethane. This polymer forms a film that has a unique "soft feel" similar to the feel of rubber. The film also has a naturally dull luster without the addition of conventional flatting agents.
Solvent Free Polyurethane
Bond Polymers International manufactures a wide range of waterborne polyurethanes including several solvent free waterborne polyurethane products.

Why are people choosing Waterborne Polyurethane Products?
Waterborne Polyurethanes are fully reacted Urethane polymers dispersed in water. These products contain no residual free isocyanate. These polymers are now being widely used in the coatings and adhesives industries, and are finding their way into other high performance niche applications every day.
Waterborne Polyurethane for Graphic Arts
Waterborne Urethane Dispersions make excellent overprint varnishes (OPV) as well as binders for inks. Waterborne urethane resins can be used by themselves or in conjunction with acrylic emulsions to reach just the right cost/performance balance for your specific graphic arts application.
Water-Based Polyurethanes For Textile & Cordage Applications
Waterborne Polyurethane Resins are unique in that they combine excellent tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and toughness with exceptional flexibility. They are used on ropes and cordage to enhance abrasion resistance and to provide ply security.

NEWS and ISO Certified Manufacturers of Waterborne Polyurethane Dispersions
Bond Polymers International, manufacturers of waterborne polyurethane dispersions for the coating and adhesive industries, is certified to the newest ISO 9001:2008 Quality Standard.
Waterborne Polyurethane for Leather
Water based Polyurethanes make excellent leather coatings. Suitable grades are inherently flexible (no plasticizers that volatize or migrate over time), have superior tensile properties, and have excellent abrasion resistance. Water based polyurethanes can be used by themselves or in conjunction with acrylic emulsions to reach just the right cost/performance balance for your specific application.
