Polyurethane is a plastic material with changing characteristics and very diversified fields of application.
Its discovery took place in Germany between the 1920s and the 1940s, but only from the following decade was it patented and developed as an industrial production process.
In its basic formulation it is formed by the reaction between two main basic components
(Di-Isocyanate and Polyol) but, depending on the different composition of the base elements and / or the addition of different additives, it can take on physical characteristics, resistance, or surface finish that make it specific and suitable for numerous uses in commodity sectors extremely wide and differentiated.
We can obtain types of soft or flexible polyurethane, or rigid with variations on the type of surface finish.
Polyurethane is an excellent thermoacoustic insulation as well as an alternative to plastic components obtained with injection molding technology. It is suitable for food use and is environmentally friendly and recyclable.
