Branched alkyl comb diol BACD

JMTC’s branched alkyl comb diol (BACD) is diol with a comb-like structure and three C8 branched alkyl groups.

Since it has three branched alkyl groups with high hydrophobicity, its use as a monomer of polyester and polyurethane can be expected to increase the amorphous nature of polymers, improve their solubility, transparency and flexibility, lower their Tg, and adjust their rheology and viscosity.

JMTC also offers thixostar, an amphiphilic water-soluble polyurethane aggregate thickener, as a raw material with the hydrophobic branched alkyl comb diol BACD and the hydrophilic polyethylene glycol (PEG).
