Not only are polyurethanes affordable and safe, they are also sustainable materials offering added comfort and protection to our everyday lives. 

Polyurethane preserve the Earth’s natural resources by reducing the need for energy.

Polyurethanes make our lives more comfortable, from the relaxation provided by foams in furniture and bedding, to the insulation that regulates temperature inside buildings.  In cars their cushioning properties help protect drivers and passengers in case of collision. 

The material’s enormous adaptability and availability, not to mention affordability and recyclability, make it a material of choice for many manufacturers.
