What do cars, refrigerators and sofas have in common? Polyurethane.
This extremely versatile type of plastic keeps you comfortable while driving, keeps food and drinks in your refrigerator cold, keeps your home and the water in your boiler warm.
A high-quality polyurethane foam is the result of the reagents being mixed better, which optimizes the chemical reaction between the two components. To achieve this, we created and patented the FPL high pressure mixing head: the flow of the components is forced through an “L-shaped” mixing chamber to maximize the efficiency of their contact.
Since our foundation, we have been at the forefront in developing new solutions for processing polyurethanes, following chemistry’s evolution and the consequent highly efficient and high-performing polyurethane systems.
Thanks to the hard work of our R&D department, we are currently involved in improving mixing, dosing and foaming technologies, in order to make the most cutting-edge products.
Polyurethanes came into large-scale industrial use after World War II. In the 1980s, the polyurethane market grew and developed constantly, especially in terms of applications: the number of foam articles manufactured multiplied and with it the request for better performing foams increased.
