Product Description

Polyurethane is a polymeric, versatile compound formed from the chemical reaction between polyol and diisocyanate. This very chemical reaction enables the formation of a wide range of PU materials, such as great durability, chemical resistance, flexibility, and resilience. To meet specific application requirements, PU resin can be customized via adjusting the types and proportions of additives, raw materials, and processing conditions.

PU foams do a lot in terms of increasing the energy efficiency, thermal insulation, and moisture resistance of residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. PU sealants and adhesives also play a number of fairly important roles in sealing joints, windows, and doors with a very strong bond and weatherproofing property.

Beyond construction industry, PU resins find applications in the footwear industry to manufacture outsoles, midsoles, and synthetic leather. Various properties offered by PU midsoles and outsoles like shock absorption, durability, and cushioning makes them highly preferable in this industry.
