With rising demand of Polyurethanes consumed in numerous applications such as footwear, appliances, medical devices, CASE applications, furniture & bedding, automotive, construction & building, etc., polyurethane industry is sure to see a boom in near future. The manufacturers are to focus on creating polyurethane formulations that make products more durable, more resistant to chemicals, more abrasion resistant and more able to fit into varied applications. Different forms of polyurethane like flexible foams, rigid foams, chemical-resistant coatings, specialty adhesives, sealants, and elastomers can all be manufactured by appropriate chemical substitution in the formula. In it, the quantity of additive such as catalysts, surfactants, blowing agents, cross linkers, flame-retardants, light stabilizers, and fillers needs to be monitored and regulated closely to derive desired characteristics of the polymer requiring through R&D ad formula maintenance capabilities.
Due to increased awareness and advancement in polyurethane technology, there is constant pressure on the manufacturers to develop new and innovative formulations that are not only high quality, greener polyurethane products but also available at a reasonable cost; thus making the situation even more challenging for manufacturers. It’s a tough task to meet customer specific demands, identify new greener substitutes of isocyanates and polyolsand and new additives based on improved technologies like nanotechnology and antimicrobial technology. To add on to the current basket of defies, compliance to regulatory mandates related to environment, green products, energy, safety, air control and quality testing criteria’s specified by ISTM has become a normal expectation from every polyurethane manufacturer. As a result, polyurethane manufacturers need an expert ERP partner to reorganize their operations to remain competent and successful in the market place.
