What is Polyurethane?
We use polyurethanes in one form or another every day – at home, in our offices and cars, for sport and leisure activities and on holiday.
Polyurethanes are versatile, modern and safe. They are used in a wide variety of applications to create all manner of consumer and industrial products that play a crucial role in making our lives more convenient, comfortable and environmentally friendly.
Polyurethane is a plastic material, which exists in various forms. It can be tailored to be either rigid or flexible, and is the material of choice for a broad range of end-user applications such as:
- insulation of refrigerators and freezers
- building insulation
- cushioning for furniture
- car parts
- rollers and tyres
- composite wood panels
- shoe soles
