Polyurethane manufacturing

Below is a description of polyurethane manufacturing and what there are for different types of materials.

 

 

 

Structure & Production

Polyurethanes is a common name for polymers. Most polyurethanes are made from three starting materials; polyols, isocyanates and chain extenders. Depending on how the structure and mixing ratio of the constituents are varied, polymers are created with the desired properties.

Various combinations enable tailor-made production of most product types such as foam, integral materials, elastomers, adhesives, paints, coatings and sealants.

Polymers are most easily seen as chains of three-dimensional structures consisting of monomers, ie short repeating units.

Polyurethane can be given different properties

Polyurethane is one of our most flexible materials. Due to differences in mixing and manufacturing techniques, the properties can be adapted to the desired use, often molding is the manufacturing method used.

Foam

Flexible, rigid or semi-rigid material with open cells, alternatively with leather. Foamed polyurethane is often used for insulation but also as upholstery in furniture, textiles or vehicle interiors.

Compact

Flexible or rigid compact polyurethanes are a flexible construction material that can be adapted for most areas. Compact materials are used for industrial applications but also in the manufacture of, for example, furniture.

TPU

TPU – Thermoplastic Polyurethane – is an elastic, extremely durable material that is excellent for details for vehicles, power tools, sporting goods and medical equipment. A well-known application is also covers for tablets and mobile phones.
