Given the nature of the material, it should be no surprise that chemical blending equipment is an essential component of your success in the manufacturing of polyurethane.
It’s no secret that 2020 has been a challenging year for manufacturers. Regardless of industry, companies around the world have had to tackle new complexities and roadblocks as a result of the pandemic, tariff challenges, and the subsequent supply and logistics hurdles. But from these challenges have come new ways of thinking, innovative new processes, and solutions designed to help companies get back on track — and stay on it.
Polyurethane is one of the most flexible, adaptable, and customizable materials in use in countless applications and markets today. From being used in the military for numerous defense applications due to its strength and affordability to serving as a structural component in the construction industry due to its rigidity and sound absorption properties, there’s no other material like polyurethane. The same goes for healthcare and pharmaceutical, where medical grade polyurethane is used for countless applications.Read more
With Veterans Day around the corner, we wanted to take this opportunity to thank veterans for their service. Your time, energy, and sacrifices are deeply appreciated, and we’re grateful to you for all that you do to keep our nation safe. We also wanted to take the opportunity to share ways that our equipment plays an important part in numerous military grade foam applications.
Industrial strength foam isn’t restricted to one or two industries — it’s a common part of multiple industries worldwide. Countless products rely on rigid polyurethane foam as part of their design in order to perform under varying conditions.
Across the world, polyurethane material is in use in countless products and applications that businesses and consumers need and rely on every day. In each situation, the polyurethane mixture used to create the products must be developed to meet the end product performance characteristics. Chemical suppliers such as Dow, Covestro, and BASF engineer these formulations to address both external pressures from the elements like temperature, moisture, and heat and internal pressure such as cellular structure, composition, any gas nucleation used, and so on. In order to achieve success in these applications, the first step of polyurethane testing is dependent on the chemical suppliers.
The stay-at-a-home orders are beginning to lift and people are slowly returning to their places of work. Throughout that time, the polyurethane equipment that many companies rely on for their production has sat dormant, or depending on your business, perhaps with a reduced number of cells in operation. As a result, you may find that equipment needs to be tuned, adjusted, or even repaired due to its inactivity.
Polyurethane is one of the most customizable materials available in markets today. Whereas other materials allow for significant customization for appearance purposes only, polyurethane can acquire a number of different properties. By mixing polyol and isocyanate in specific ratios and combining it with other chemicals, companies can achieve remarkable results.Read more
Numerous Industries around the world rely on their mix heads for efficient, ongoing production. Many products and materials require polyurethane as a key ingredient in their design and construction. Read more
