What is PU?

PU foam is made by mixing 2 liquid components under shear and pouring or injecting them into a mould cavity. The chemical reaction kicks off within seconds and carbon dioxide gas is given off as bubbles. As the polymer is formed the bubbles are trapped in the matrix forming a foam. The constituents can be modified to form foam with many different densities and properties.
