Polyurethane, or PU, foams, are used extensively in the form of rigid foams by the building trade for both practical and decorative purposes. PU foams are durable, highly temperature resistant, and generally impervious to the effects of moisture, mould and chemicals. Advanced engineered foam processes can also greatly increase the fire-resistance of PU foams.
As an insulating material, PU foam sheets are among the most effective. Easy to install and to glue to most surfaces, they can also be cut into shape to fit awkward corners. Rigid PU foam sheets are used in such applications as wall fittings, door panels, and roofing. PU rigid foams are also increasingly used for aesthetic applications around the home. A specialist foam producer will be able to generate shaped foams to any size or colour. Since PU foams are easier to mould than more traditional materials such as wood, concrete or plaster; and since PU foam products are considerably more lightweight than those made from other materials; they lend themselves extraordinarily well to the whimsies of interior design.
PU foams are also equally suited to external decorations, given their resistance to the elements. From decorative cornices to columns and domes, PU foams can provide an almost infinite range of machined foam design concepts. What is more, because they are available in a wide range of colours, PU foams can be installed without the need for painting for many years to come.
