Polyurethane Gets New Skin to Protect Against Global Warming

Dow recently launched its ComfortScience customized I-Skin solutions– a new polyurethane integral skin foam now formulated with hydrofluoroolefins (HFOs) that may have lower global warming potential than other chemical compounds such as hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). The new Dow polyurethane integral skin foam with lower global warming potential is designed for North American companies complying with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s policies.

Polyurethane integral skin foam can be found in the interior of cars, furniture parts, office chairs, and wheel chairs in addition to other applications. Soft to the touch, the integral skin foam provides comfort, protection, and lightweight flexibility.

Polyurethane is ready for any challenge thrown at it –now more than ever, with such thick I-Skin!
