English term or phrase: isocyanate curable polymer
...fire-resistant composition for coating, filling, sealing, and protection comprising an isocyanate curable polymer, a polymer curable isocyanate,...

Could "isocyanate curable polymer" be "polymère vulcanisable d'isocyanate"? And what about "polymer curable isocyanate"? "Would the latter be "isocyanate vulcanisable de polymère"?

Thanks.

isocyanate polymère durcissable
Explanation:
As far as "isocyanate curable polymer" is concerned:
1) It seems that "curable polymer" is "polymère durcissable" (one example among many below)
2) "isocyanate polymer", I think "isocyanate polymère" is better than "polymère d'isocyanate" (again, example below), so I am pretty sure my suggestion is good.

As for the second one, "polymer curable isocyanate", I am not sure I understand what it means, but it's definitely something different since it's from the same text. The term curable definitely refers to the polymer, so maybe it's something like "polymère durcissable à groupements isocyanates".

Hope this helps,

Jérôme
