Polyurethane, also known as PUR or PU, is a versatile material with properties that allow it to be used almost anywhere. Polyurethane offers comfort, protection, and design in a number of items we use every day – our lives would be very different if it weren’t for PUR.
What are the key features of PUR?
PUR has a low weight, a long lifespan, and a high elasticity. It’s shape-stable, chemically resistant, and oil-resistant. PUR is also weatherproof and can withstand both low and high temperatures (wind and UV radiation). It’s non-static, and it’s excellent at insulating and silencing.
Two component products – PUR is a liquid two-component substance made up of polyol and isocyanate. When these two are combined, a reaction occurs, yielding polyurethane. The properties can be adjusted according to the intended application depending on how the material is mixed – and what manufacturing method is used.
Examples of Polyurethane (PUR) applications
It can be tailored to be either rigid or flexible, and is the material of choice for a broad range of end-user applications such as:
- Insulation of refrigerators and freezers
- Building insulation
- Cushioning for furniture
- Car parts
- Composite wood panels
- Shoe soles
Polyurethanes are adaptable, contemporary, and clean. They are used in a wide range of applications to produce a wide range of consumer and industrial goods that make our lives easier, more comfortable, and environmentally sustainable.
