Our tailor-made products includes:

Automotive and Furniture Seats

Automotive interiors on average contains 18-20 kg of polyurethane products, of which 13 kg consists of flexible foam in various forms such as seating, head rest, arm rest and sound insulation. The main parameters for molded seating cushions are body support (load bearing) and comfort (vibration damping).

Flexible foam cushions for domestic furniture – settees, armchairs, sofas, dining chairs and other items - are usually thicker and softer than automotive seating. In general, physical property requirements of the foam are less demanding. However, they must have pleasant surface feel and compression set requirements.

PPTM aim is towards focusing on comfort and comfort retention, weight savings, improved recyclability and reduced volatile emission. Though PPTM produces polyol system based on MDI/TDI, our main focus is on modified MDIs. Modified MDIs’ with its lower vapour pressure, leads to lower volatile emission. Also, formulations require lower catalyst usage due to its intrinsic high reactivity level.

Visoelastic Foams

Molded viscoelastic foams, or known as molded ‘memory’ foams; are mainly used in pillows, orthopaedic cushions and soft toys. Viscoelastic foams combine the properties of resilient foams and viscous materials and they are generally characterised by a slow response to static or dymatic stress. Since the glass transition temperature is close to room temperature, it causes the foam to recover only slowly after compression and this relaxation are often used to characterise viscoelasticity.

Heat and Sound Insulation

In construction industries, selection of thermal insulation materials and building design reduces energy consumption. Polyurethane based insulation materials include roofing panels, board laminates with different facers and insulated piping. Sound insulation foams are generally soft grades cold-cure foam with very open cells, often used in automotive interiors and acoustic performance constructions.

Structural Foams

High density rigid foams are usually defined as having densities above 250 kg/m3 and usually have a dense outer skin and lower density foam core forming a stiff sandwich structure. Applications include cornices, automotive components and pipe supports.

Spray Foams

Spray technology combines insulation properties and easy application due to its unique adhesive ability to provide in-situ insulation on a variety of surfaces. It provides a continuous covering on irregular surfaces, which leads to excellent crack and seam filling properties. Sprayed rigid polyurethane foams are closed celled, air tight, resistant to mildew and fungal attack.

Elastomers

Elastomers are similar to flexible foam in that they are rubbery materials that they will resume their original shape after deformed, but more dense, ranging from 200 kg/m3 to densities greater than 1000 kg/m3 for solid materials.

The various polyurethane elastomers offer a board range of processing characteristics, hardness and compositions depending on the specific processing and application requirements. This includes microcellular, casting, RIM, spray, coating elastomers and integral skin foams (ISFs).
