What is polyurethane?

Nowadays we can not live without polyurethane, because it is everywhere, in our home (couch, bed, pillows, freezer), in our car (steering wheel, seats...), and in sports (surfboard, skates) etc..

Depending upon its formulation Polyurethane can be rigid, flexible, integral or compact.

What is Thermal Polyurethane (PUR/PIR)

Rigid polyurethane it is a generic term which refers to a big number of different formulations and applications.It is the result of a chemical reaction between isocyanate and polyol.

When we talk about rigid polyurethane for insulation we are referring to a group of thermal insulation materials based on PUR (polyurethane) or PIR (polyisocyanurate).A unique closed-cell structure and density give to PUR/PIR the characteristics of a great thermal insulator, an excellent resistance to compression and dimensional stability.

The characteristics of the different types of polyurethane depend on its structure, raw-materials and manufacturing process.

The thermal polyurethane is not toxic and is chemically inert.
