We use polyurethanes in one form or another every day – at home, in our offices and cars, for sport and leisure activities or on holiday.
Polyurethanes are versatile, modern and safe materials. They are used in a wide variety of applications in consumer and industrial products that play a crucial role in making our lives more convenient, comfortable and environmentally responsible.
Polyurethanes are polymers, which exist in various forms. They can be tailored to be either rigid or flexible foams or elastomers, binders or coating materials. Polyurethanes are tailored-made to be applicable to a multitude of finished products with specific properties and functions
The key intrinsic product qualities of polyurethanes are:
- Resistant to abrasion and weathering, protecting substrate from corrosion
Therefore they are ideally suited to optimize the use of resources and to reduce the environmental footprint of finished products.
The list of applications is continuously extended through the discovery of new and innovative uses for these versatile materials.
