Happy Earth Day
First organized in 1970, Earth Day is a day to remember and appreciate the Earth’s environment, and our roles within it. Did you know the use of polyurethane contributes in ways that help us preserve certain natural resources?
Today, rigid foams used for thermal insulation are significantly enhancing the energy efficiency of residential and commercial buildings. Because these polyurethane applications dramatically reduce buildings’ energy needs, we end up conserving natural resources that would otherwise be required for heating and cooling.
In addition, polyurethanes also help make structures more durable, minimizing the need for additional maintenance or building upgrades. Certain polyurethanes can help buildings be more resilient to weather events by helping to strengthen the structure and avoid costly repairs.
