Below is a description of polyurethane manufacturing and what there are for different types of materials.
Structure & Production
Polyurethane 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 polyurethane manufacturing techniques, the properties can be adapted to the desired use, often molding is the manufacturing method used.
