Polyurethane is chemically formed by the reaction of a polypol with an isocyanate. Polyols provide the soft qualities, with the hard segments provided by the isocyanates. The characteristics of the final material depend upon the ratio of these two components, and the mixing and production techniques applied.
The unique properties that polyurethane offers has led to an increase in the use of polyurethane products throughout different industries. These material properties allows for products to be manufactured to meet a wide and varying range of demanding applications.
