Investigation of Thermoplastic Polyurethanes Synthesized via Two Different Prepolymers

Abstract

The man aim of this work was to investigate the effect of the molecular weight of polyols, mixture of prepolymers, and [NCO]/[OH] molar ratio used during the prepolymer chain extending step on the chemical structure, thermomechanical and mechanical properties, and thermal stability of thermoplastic poly(ether-urethane)s In this work thermoplastic poly(ether-urethane)s were synthesized by using polyols with a various molecular weight, 4,4′-diphenylmethane diisocyanate and bio-based glycol. Materials were obtained by a two-step method. The tests were carried out for polyurethanes obtained from a mixture of prepolymers and for reference samples. In the case of materials obtained with using mixture of prepolymers, the ratio of both prepolymers was determined on 50/50 weight percent. Soft segments of materials prepared with using mixture consist of two different polyols. The chemical structure was analyzed using FTIR spectroscopy. The Gaussian deconvolution technique was used to study the hydrogen bonding as well as to decompose carbonyl region of three peaks in various TPUs. The thermal degradation behavior was investigated by using thermogravimetric analysis at heating rates of 10 °C/min. It was confirmed that the mixture of prepolymers has an effect of the degree of phase separation, thermal stability and selected properties of synthesized thermoplastic poly(ether-urethane)s.
