Abstract Polyurethane potting compounds based on multifunctional isocyanurate of aliphatic diisocyanate, hexamethylene diisocyanate (HDI-IC) as Component A and polypropylene glycol, polyethylene glycol and castor oil (Component B) were prepared as potential potting compounds for the fabrication of a haemodialyser. The setting characteristics of the potting compounds having isocyanate index 2.54 are better than those of the compounds having 1.77. The ageing stability of castor oil and PPG-based potting compounds having isocyanate index 2.54 is better than that of PEG oil-based potting compounds. Appreciable hydrolytic, oxidative and chemical stability could be observed with HDI-IC/PPG/2.54 potting compounds for development of haemodialyser, oxygenator, etc.
