Moving Us Forward
We've seen the future and it's incredible.
We truly are living in the technological age. From the ways we communicate with one another, to how we do our jobs, all the way to how we entertain ourselves, technology has profoundly changed our lives.
As technology evolves, so will the ways in which we employ polyurethane. With advances in chemical engineering, we are continuing to find new roles for products that rely on the versatility and durability of polyurethane. Below are just some of the key areas where new technologies are fostering product innovations that will make our lives more convenient, more comfortable and increasingly more affordable.
Flexible Polyurethane Foam
Flexible polyurethane foam has long been used as cushioning for a variety of consumer and commercial products, including bedding, furniture, automotive interiors, carpet underlay and packaging. New innovations in flexible foam design are making it even lighter, softer and more durable than ever.
Rigid Polyurethane Foam
Rigid polyurethane foams represent one of the world’s most popular, energy-efficient and versatile insulation and roofing materials. New rigid foam products coming to market significantly cut energy costs while making commercial and residential properties more energy efficient and comfortable.
Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants and Elastomers
The uses of polyurethanes in the coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers market offer an increasingly broad and growing spectrum of applications and benefits. Polyurethane coatings can enhance a product’s appearance and lengthen its lifespan. Polyurethane adhesives can provide strong bonding advantages, while polyurethane sealants provide tighter seals. And polyurethane elastomers can be molded into almost any shape, are lighter than metal, offer superior stress recovery and can be resistant to many environmental factors.
