Broad line of standard and custom polyurethane
equipment and turnkey systems for appliance, automotive, furniture, panel/ insulation, recreation, slabstock and specialty applications.
In addition to the superior tuft bind and delamination strength, polyurethanes
out-perform latex as a carpet backing because they do not dissolve in water, weakening the hold on the carpet fibers.
The global spray polyurethane
foam (SPF) market was valued at around USD 1648.8 million in 2018 and is expected to register over 7% CAGR during the review period.
In this study, DMF-based polyurethanes
for wet process artificial leather were prepared by using 1,6-hexanediol/ 1,4-butanediol as chain extender and polycarbonate diol and polyester diol containing 3-methyl-1,5-pentanediol (MPD) component, which is known to give excellent adhesion, durability, low temperature flexibility, and transparency.

Technical Conference is available from the American Chemistry Council (202) 249-6121; www.americanchemistry.com.
New direct-to-metal (DTM) technologies for industrial factory-applied coatings that reduce the number of coats and energy costs in the heavy equipment and general industrial markets are the next frontier for polyurethanes
and polyaspartic technologies.
Novomer Inc., a sustainable materials company pioneering a family of high-performance polymers and other chemicals from renewable feedstocks such as carbon dioxide, has announced several key personnel appointments as part of its focused development and commercialization of a family of high-performance and sustainable polycarbonate polyols for polyurethane
Furniture and interiors, construction, automotive, electronics and appliances, footwear and packaging are the major end users of polyurethanes
. Furniture and interiors dominates the global polyurethane
consumption and the positive growth in this industry across the globe is driving the global polyurethane
of Technology, Poland) is intended to cover the borderlands between selected basic issues and process-oriented issues for linear polyurethanes
, important intermediates in the production of foams and elastomers and also final products that can perform as linear thermoplastic elastomers, ionomers, or as selected hybrid systems and materials.

Following its highly successful predecessors in January 1999 and March 2002, Polyurethanes
for High Performance Coatings III will again focus on the most recent developments in polyurethane
chemistry and polyurethane
formulations for coatings applications.
