Polyurethane is swimming with the Sharks

Starting July 5th, you might see sharks on your television screen! Often, dive teams and film crews rely on the many talents of polyurethane to help them stay safe.  Polyurethane coatings and sealants are water-resistant and used to protect the exterior of diving equipment.  Spandex fibers in wet suits are lightweight and water-friendly providing divers a pleasant underwater experience as they film their shark friends. 

On the ocean surface, polyurethane foam used in boat insulation protects crew members from the salty sea air.  Likewise, flexible polyurethane foam used in seat cushions, allows these shark seekers to rest comfortably on the boat ride back to shore.
