Polyurethane elastomers are used in a very wide range of applications.

Most of these are in the engineering field where properties of durability, abrasion resistance and chemical and oil resistance are sought after.

The applications include rollers and belts for carrying minerals in quarrying operations, wheels for roller-blades and hospital trolleys, the rollers for printing processes and hoses and other components in automotive, under-the bonnet, applications.

Polyurethane is also used to insulate pipes in industrial installation and district heating and cooling network, reducing energy losses and maintenance requirements.
