The notion “isocyanates” refers to a class of chemicals, containing two/more isocyanate groups (-NCO). Most isocyanates are extremely reactive liquids, especially sensitive to hydrolysis. Isocynates are an essential feedstock in the manufacture of polyurethane polymers, which, in their turn, are used to produce spandex fibres, polyurethane foams and paints, coatings, elastomers, adhesives and a far more. Toluene diisocyanate and methylene bis-phenylisocyanate are the most commonly used forms of isocyanates.
