PHILADELPHIA — Chemtura Corp., which calls itself a world leader in hot-cast urethane prepolymers, has launched a thermoplastic polyurethane product line under its Ultralast brand.

Ultralast products are based on Chemtura's low free technology, which it says helps to eliminate undesired reactions. The chemical company said a "well-defined polymer structure" results in improved properties and easier processing.

"The unique formulation of our Ultralast Thermoplastic Urethanes allows plastic manufacturers to achieve superior performance by utilizing Chemtura's cast urethanes technology," said Matthew Hellstern, president and general manager of the urethanes business, in a 15 May news release.
