Polyurethanes Research Lab
BASF Innovation Campus, Shanghai
Polyurethane is a polymer made from reaction of diisocyanates (MDI and/or TDI) and polyols. Polyurethane is used in a wide variety of applications to create all manner of consumer and industrial products.
Two lab managers check the quality of viscoelastic polyurethane foam. The density of a foam product depends on the type and amount of blowing agent, and the flexibility or rigidity on the structure of polyols and isocyanates involved.
