Polyurethane foam is a synthetic polymer that contains urethane radicals. Polyurethane foam is used to provide insulation and protection of material against external sources that propagate corrosion. Two types of polyurethane foam that are generally used are rigid and flexible foams. Rigid polyurethane foam is used for most insulation purposes while flexible polyurethane foam is used for packaging, padding and several commercial purposes. Polyurethane foam can also be classified based on its composition and fundamental properties, as either ester or ether polyurethane foam.
Polyurethane foam is used in several end-use sectors including automotive, construction and packaging industry. The growing demand for polyurethane foams from the automotive industry for improving the riding comfort of the passengers is primarily driving the growth of this market. They are used extensively for interior components of automobiles, in seats, headrests, armrests, roof liners, dashboards, and instrument panels, as they are lightweight, durable, versatile, and offer freedom of design.
