Polyurethane Additives Market by Type (Surfactants, Catalyst, Fillers, and Others)

Polyurethanes are formed by reacting a polyol (an alcohol with more than two reactive hydroxyl groups per molecule) with a diisocyanate/polymeric isocyanate in the presence of suitable catalysts (tertiary amine catalysts) and additives.


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/05/2017 -- Moreover, multiple diisocyanates and a wide range of polyols are further processed to produce polyurethanes. Polyurethane additives types, such as flexible foams, are enhanced with additives to improve the comfort properties of mattresses, upholstered furniture, and automobile interiors. Polyurethane additives are increasingly in demand to be used in polyurethane rigid foam applications, which contributes to the insulation properties of refrigerators and the construction materials. Moreover, growth in demand for polyurethane additives in coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers market is expected to lead the market growth. Furthermore, polyurethane antioxidants protect the foam from discoloration caused due to scorching and foam degradation.
