G Polytec Co., Ltd., (CEO Jung-jin Park) participated in the 2021 K-Chemistry Cyber Exhibition.

G Polytec is focusing on developing eco-friendly products and managing management for the future. In addition, eco-friendly materials such as Sulfadiol-7Q (reactive dispersant for aqueous polyurethane resins) have been developed over the past 10 years.

SULFADIOL®-7Q is a highly reactive dispersant for preparing aqueous polyurethane resin (PUD) with higher hydrolysis resistance and superior storage stability than other types of dispersants such as DMPA and DMBA. SULFADIOL®-7Q consists of a terminal hydroxy group to which sulfonated sodium salt and 4 molecules of propylene oxide are added. It is a chain extension widely used in the synthesis of aqueous polyurethane resins such as woodworking or shoe adhesives (or binders) or artificial leather.

SULFADIOL®-7Q is a highly hydrophilic reactive dispersant for water-soluble polyurethane-based dispersants (PUD) and has excellent compatibility with acidic or basic conditions, and thus can be widely applied to various reagents. It has been developed as a product to replace DMBA and DMPA with carboxyl ion-centered products and has higher hydrophilicity and storage stability than DMPA and lower sensitivity to the effects of the external environment (temperature or pH). In addition, SULFADIOL®-7Q is neutralized into a sulfonated sodium salt type that does not require a neutralizer, allowing more extensive process modifications when preparing a polyurethane dispersion.

A G Polytec official said, “It has been more than 40 years since our product was developed and known, but it has only been a few years since it was applied to actual industrial sites, so we attended the exhibition to promote it. We would like to actively promote commercial distribution and sales with quality competitiveness and price competitiveness, they said.

Meanwhile, the 2021 K-Chemicals Cyber Exhibition, an online exhibition in the field of chemistry, opened in March and is always in operation, and currently has 270 chemical-related companies. It supports overseas marketing of domestic companies in a contact-free manner and boasts the largest scale in Korea where you can see various product information of industrial chemicals (paint, adhesive, surfactant, MDI, Polybutene, polyol, catalyst, foaming agent, additives, pipes, living plastics, additives, etc.) and cosmetics (sunblock, lotion, shampoo, face masks, etc.).

The chemical industry is closely linked to major industries such as electronics and automobiles and is especially at the center of the global issue of carbon neutrality. In line with this, the Korea Precision Chemical Industry Promotion Association (KSCIA), the organizer, is helping domestic chemical companies advance overseas through various support such as export, research and analysis, technical standards, HDR support, and international agreements. Based on companies entering online permanent exhibition halls in the chemical sector, it has accumulated more than $136 million in 2021 as of the third quarter and is holding online export consultations with KOTRA in addition to entering the online permanent exhibition hall.
