Polyurethane chemistry is of great significance in many applications worldwide. Moreover, their development potential has yet to be exhausted by any means. New applications are being constantly identified and the product range will be further development. This is a completely updated version of the book Polyurethanes for Coatings published in /5(1). The latter half of the book focuses on polyurethane foams, the largest segment of the polyisocyanate-based foam industry. It contains a fully updated description of the chemistry, raw materials, manufacturing, formulations, analyses, and testing involved in producing a wide variety of progressive applications, including building materials. Increasing amount of polyurethane foams waste (e.g. from the building or furniture industry) produced every year resulted in the intensive development of their recycling methods. This chapter covers most important mechanical recycling methods, i.e. regrinding, rebonding, adhesive pressing, and molding. Polyurethane types, synthesis and applications the PU industry in , with PU produced through the reaction. between diisocyanate and polyester diol. 2,3.

A shoe sole, for example, may be 'blown' to double the volume of solid polymer. This process is so versatile that the expansion can be taken much further. In low-density foams for upholstery or thermal insulation less than 3% of the total volume is polyurethane. The gas has expanded the original volume occupied by the liquid by 30 to 40 times.
