Polyol from plant oil is not a novel concept, but Honey Bee™ soy polyol is. The wide-spread use of natural oil polyol in urethanes has been hindered by a reputation for low reactivity and diminished physical properties, but the demand for alternative feedstocks persists. Bringing renewable & performance together is possible and it doesn’t require fancy products or processes, just formulating to the strengths of the components. Honey Bee’s high primary hydroxyls ensures a timely and complete reaction; the unique molecular structure enhances bond strength, and naturally present plasticizers aid in flexibility. With Honey Bee™, performance priority is second nature.

Honey Bee™ soy polyols offer a novel approach to  performance  polyurethanes

Unique molecular structure enhances visco properties, adds strength and flexibility

Unlike most natural oil products, Honey Bee™ reacts like conventional EO capped products, without the EO
