Market Definition

Hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) is an oligomer of the chemical compound butadiene with hydroxyl functional groups completed at the individual end. Polyurethane polymers are produced with the reaction of hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene with isocyanates. It is a liquid that is translucent and has a color alike to that of wax paper and viscosity texture as that of corn syrup. The major application area for the HTPB compounds is solid rocket propellant. Due to the properties such as excellent hydrophobicity, low glass transition temperatures, and low volatiles content, these polybutadienes are used majorly in aerospace and defense industries.

Regulatory Framework

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA): All components of HTPB are listed or excluded from listing on the United States Environmental Protection Agency Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) inventory. This product contains no toxic chemicals in excess of the applicable de minimis concentration subject to the reporting requirements of Section 313 of Title III of the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 and 40 CFR Part 372.
