Covestro represents that, for a period of ≤ 3 weeks following the day of shipment as stated in the respective delivery documents, the product will meet the values set forth in section "specification" above provided that the product is stored in full compliance with the storage conditions and is otherwise handled appropriately.
The lapse of this period does not necessarily mean that the product no longer meets specifications. However, prior to using said product, Covestro recommends to test such a product if it still meets the specifications. Covestro does not make any representation regarding the product after the period and Covestro shall not be responsible or liable in any way for the product failing to meet specifications after the period.
Like all isocyanates, DESMODUR VP.PU 0118 LIQUID is sensitive to moisture and reacts with water to form insoluble urea derivatives and carbon dioxide. The generation of carbon dioxide in sealed containers can lead to a dangerous build-up of pressure. Contact with air, especially if accompanied by simultaneous exposure to light, accelerates yellowing of
DESMODUR VP.PU 0118 LIQUID. It is therefore advisable to store liquid DESMODUR VP.PU 0118 LIQUID under dry nitrogen. Yellowing generally has no effect on the product's processing behaviour, however.
DESMODUR VP.PU 0118 LIQUID is sensitive to heat and likely to dimerization (uretdione formation).
The solid product dimerizes more rapidly at room temperature than the liquid product stored at 43 °C. Crystallized DESMODUR VP.PU 0118 LIQUID should therefore be stored at temperatures below 5 °C and melted rapidly but gently before use. Although the rate of dimerization decreases as the temperature drops, storag ... text to long! (max 2000 characters)
