  • .Polyurethanes are a group of polymers created by reacting a diisocyanate with an alcohol (a diol or a polyol). Around 95% of polyurethanes globally are produced from isocyanates, either methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) or toluene diisocyanate (DTI), which are aromatic chemicals derived from benzene and toluene, respectively
  • Polyurethane elastomers are noted for their toughness, flexibility (even at low temperatures), strength, abrasion resistance, shock absorbency and chemical resistance. Their physical properties can be tailored to a wide variety of end uses by adjusting the mix and nature of the raw materials. Because they are relatively expensive compared with most other elastomers, they are used primarily in demanding applications such as automotive bumper covers/fascias/trim, solid tires, industrial rollers, shoe soles, sport boots and various mechanical goods.
  •  Many flexible PU foam producers and automotive seating manufacturers provide products made with bio-based polyols (the renewable content is widely varied). However, market penetration of "green" PU was still small in most of the global PU markets in 2012
  • The United States, Western Europe, China and Other Asia are currently the major producing and consuming regions for polyurethane (PU) elastomers. Global consumption of PU elastomers was 74% thermosets and 26% thermoplastics in 2012.
  •  China will continue to be the largest global producer of footwear and the largest consumer of PU elastomers for this sector. The largest sector of the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) polyurethane elastomers market is in footwear/microcellular systems. Despite the relocation of the shoe industry to the Asia Pacific region, PU demand for footwear in EMEA is still significant.
