Hydroxyl-terminated Polybutadiene Market will Reflect Significant Growth Prospects during 2018-2026

Hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) is a viscous translucent liquid, which is an oligomer of butadiene terminated at each end with a hydroxyl group. Hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) has low molecular weight. Hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) has a variety of properties, as it is a mixture of compounds and not a pure substance. Hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene has low volatile content and it has low glass transition temperature. Hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) is hydrophobic in nature and is extremely reactive.
