Summary Volume 1 is dedicated to polyols for elastic PU (flexible foams, elastomers) ; Volume 2 is dedicated to polyols for rigid PU (rigid foams, wood substitute, packaging, flotation materials).
Polyurethanes are one of the most dynamic groups of polymers, they find use in nearly every aspect of modern life, in applications such as furniture, bedding, seating and instrument panels for cars, shoe soles, thermoinsulation, carpet backings, packaging, adhesives, sealants, binders and as coatings. In 2004 10.6 million tons of polyurethanes were produced, in 2014 the world production was close to 20 million tons. In the last decade (2005-2015) important, worldwide developments in the area of polyols for polyurethanes were carried out, especially for polyols from renewable resources, described in detail in this second edition of the book. The main raw materials used for the production of PU are polyols and isocyanates. The first of these is the subject of this two volume handbook.
Subject Polyols.
