Based on its unique characteristics, Urethane products have been designed to cater to various needs. For example, Urethane excels in mechanical strength – hence used in the making of high tensile strength adhesives. It can endure extreme conditions such as exposure to severe temperatures, salt water, and UV light - used in the making of marine industrial products, making of skateboards, buoys, mining and water treatment applications. It is resistant to cigarette fire – thus used in making bedding materials. It is water repellent – used in a wide range of coating and waterproofing membranes.
