Up, Up, and Away with Polyurethane
Polyurethane foam has long been recognized in the aerospace industry for its insulation properties, but polyurethane can also be found on commercial aircraft – both inside and out. From the passenger cabin walls, ceilings, overhead stowage, lavatories, and even the polyurethane coating that can add shine and protection to the exterior of the airplane, polyurethane helps travelers arrive at their destinations in comfort and style. The sleek and shiny exterior of an aircraft can sometimes be attributed to a water-based polyurethane coating painted on the outside exterior of the plane. Polyurethane is even resistant to heat just over 300 degrees Fahrenheit. So the next time you’re traveling high in the sky, sit back, relax, and let polyurethane help with the trip.
