Aliphatic diisocyanates (ADI) are specialty intermediate chemicals used primarily to make durable coatings, adhesives, textiles, sealants and elastomers. ADIs are typically not sold directly for consumer use. Rather, they are sold primarily to industrial customers who use them as binders or hardeners during manufacturing processes. Volumes of ADI products used in North America are significantly smaller than the aromatic diisocyanates.1

Many of the products that we rely upon every day are safer, tougher and more reliable through the use of polyurethane products made with aliphatic diisocyanates chemistry. Extensive safety precautions are undertaken by the ADI and related industries to address the health and safety of users of ADI and to comply with all government regulations.
