Polysulfide

Nouryon is the largest producer of liquid polysulfide polymer Thioplast G worldwide. We produce a number of different Thioplast G types with different molecular weight and degree of branching. Due to the excellent property of the cured Thioplast G such as elasticity and pronounced chemical resistance it is mainly used as base polymer to produce sealants for many industries. Physical properties such as tensile strength and adhesion can be adjusted by using various fillers, plasticizers and additives.
