PU Foam by ApplicationThere's a multitude of applications for Polyurethane
Moulded Polyurethane Foams (PU) are basically polymers formed by reacting a di- or tri poly-isocyanate with a polyol. To this various cross linkers, catalysts. blowing agents, etc. an be added to produce a wide a varied range of materials capable of producing anything from a seat cushion to a shoe soles.
Flexible Foam for seating is a available with different properties to satisfy the requirement of a variety of applications eg automotive, domestic furniture, contract furniture and mass transport such as bus, rail and air.
Furniture & Table Edging
Solid Polyurethanes and elastomers can be used to create a decorative and protective edge on tables, draw fronts and other items of furniture. These edges can be could matches as required and can be ether hard to protect the furniture or softer to protect the user.
Spray Foam Insulation
Rigid Polyurethane Foams are excellent insulators and a popular choice of the construction industry. They can be used to fill Structural Insulated Panels (SIPs) which are factory produced or sprayed on site on wall, roofs, etc.
CSM - Composite Spray Moulding
CSM is a method of producing light weight moulded load bearing components for the Automotive Industry. This composite is generally constructed from a paper honeycomb and glass fibre matt all bound together by a sprayed rigid PU.
RIM - Reaction Injection Moulding
RIM is a method of producing exterior body components such as car bumpers. Widely used in the Automotive and Mass Transport Industries, these components are tough and durable and where extra strength in needed, the material can be reinforced (RRIM). Finished components are generally paintable to give an finish which is compatible to body panels.
Rubber Crumb Moulding
Rubber crumb moulding is an excellent example of recycling at work. The raw material come from car tyres which, after the metal has been removed and rubber reduced to a crumb, is bound together with PU resin and moulded into useful products. Such as tiles for surfacing children’s playgrounds as an example or anywhere where a safety surface is required.
