What is a Polyurethane?

Polyurethane products first made their appearance in the market place in the late 1930’s. This was after an intensive investigation by Dr Otto Bayer who was looking for a synthetic fibre to replace nylon. Once the basic technology was understood, new applications for foams (1941) and elastomers (1943) were developed. In the early 1950’s, commercial applications appeared.

The variety of raw materials as well as the range of different manufacturing techniques enabled pioneers to make a seemingly endless range of tailor-made products with different physical properties. These included soft foams, rigid structural and insulation foams, soft and hard elastomers and coatings.

Processing techniques include casting, spraying, foaming, reaction injection moulding, injection moulding, extrusion and painting.
