Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI)
Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI)
TDI 80/20 – Toluene Diisocyanate
Toluene Diisocyanate TDI 80-20 is a toxic and highly reactive organic compound.
The chemical formula for TDI is CH3C6H3(NCO)2. TDI is often marketed as TDI 80/20.
TDI 80-20 is a mixed blend of 80% 2,4-toluene diisocyanate and 20% 2,6-toluene diisocyanate. The clear to pale yellow liquid organic compound is toxic, has a sharp odor, and is highly reactive. It is used in the manufacture of polyurethane flexible foam (slab/molding) and non-foam urethanes.
Toluene diisocyanate (TDI) is a member of isocyanates which are chemically related to Polyurethanes. Two of the six possible isomers are commercially important: 2,4-TDI and 2,6-TDI. 2,4-TDI is produced in the pure state, but TDI is often marketed as 80/20 and 65/35 mixtures of the 2,4 and 2,6 isomers respectively. TDI is 80:20 mixture of the 2,4 and 2,6 isomers with the purity of at least 99.5%.
Toluene Diisocyanate TDI 80-20 is an aromatic isocyanate that is produced for reaction with polyols to form polyurethanes. It is widely used in the production of polyester-based soft foam, high-bearing sponges, semi-rigid ester foam, and paint.
