PUdaily, Shanghai- Consumption of CASE Polyols has risen by the structure adjustment of waterproof industry because the proportion of waterproof polyurethane coating increases, which is synthesized by CASE polyols and other raw materials. Consumption of CASE polyols in 2015 is 264 kt, up by 22.8% year on year and it is expected that China CASE polyols consumption will continue hiking robustly in the future.

Waterproof polyurethane coating is one of new waterproof material and it is synthesized by isocyanate, polyols (mainly CASE polyols) and other raw materials. It has wide development space due to its good elasticity and ductility and it has great adhesiveness and can be used on any kinds of primary surface. Waterproof polyurethane coating can overcome the lack of bituminous waterproof coating and waterproof materials.

Chinese government pushes up the reformation of waterproof industry by encouraging new waterproof material. According to statistics, China has about 3,500 waterproof companies, and the waterproof market competition is not standardized.
