Is Polyurethane the Answer to Your Product Design?

Whether you’re manufacturing a soft cushion (maybe one that needs to be extra comfortable for a desk chair) or you’re looking to design a new, durable handle with shock protection for the seat of a theme park ride, polyurethane might just be the best material for your seating or other products. It’s a fact that in many areas, polyurethane outperforms plastics and rubbers. Its superior resilience to oil, grease, weather, wear and tear from age, abrasives — just to name a few — make it a perfect solution for many rigid and flexible products.

Intro BlogSince its development in the 1930s, polyurethane applications have expanded, positioning it as a material with immense versatility. Some common (and distinctly different) uses of polyurethane are spray foam for insulation and novelty items such as those seen on the heads of enthusiastic Wisconsin sports fans! At Urethane Systems Plus, Inc we’ve taken the high-quality foundation of an existing product line of over 20 years, Soft Touch Bases, and added capabilities to become a full-service manufacturer and distributor of polyurethane products.
