Polyurethane: A Variety Of Applications
Polyurethane is a core component of many technical items in various sectors. It is the material choice for a broad range of applications because of its versatility and its excellent mechanical properties. Sometimes we do not even notice the presence of polyurethane in our everyday lives as it is such a common material.
Let’s take one application as an example to find out how many items are made of polyurethane. In the sports field polyurethane is widely used because for example for the production of shoe soles, rubber wheels for roller blades, bike saddles, rugby post protectors, motorcycle helmets, mats and so on.
But of course this is not the only sector in which polyurethane is widely present for the production of technical items. The shipbuilding sector is another field in which polyurethane is present, both as an insulating material and for other uses in boat decks, pipes, sound-absorbing panels, steering wheels, padding, anchor buoys, floats.
In the medical sector the use of polyurethanes continues to grow because of their extreme versatility. As a matter of fact, developers and chemical engineers choose polyurethanes because they can be used in applications where other materials do not work. As it is a flexible, strong and resistant material, polyurethane can be found in many different types of medical devices, but also in medical beds, surgical tables, medical tubings, microbiology safety cabinets and other devices.
Our aim is to help you get the best results for the production of any item made of PU: this is why we customize every solution by taking very carefully into consideration the features of the final products.
