POLYURETHANE FOAM MOLDING
A driving factor in Chemours' desire to develop Teflon™ coating solutions for the polyurethane foam mold release market is the report that "the one component polyurethane foam market is estimated at USD 2.38 billion in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 3.37 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2017 to 2022." This projection can, in large part, be attributed to the rapid growth of the construction industry. Polyurethane foams are used for insulation, sound absorption, various types of padding, and structural reinforcement.
Typically, when using polyurethane foam, a release agent spray is needed to remove the foam from its mold. With a Teflon polyurethane release coating, the spray can be left out, which offers significant benefits to polyurethane foam manufacturers in the form of enhanced compliance with environmental regulation, improved safety conditions for employees, reductions in product defects, and the complete elimination of dry ice blasting.
Outside of construction, polyurethane foam is found in household appliances, automobiles, packaging, and footwear.
Chemours is proud to announce a product that demonstrates outstanding performance. It is a proprietary compound that offers excellent polyurethane foam mold release properties, durability, and stands up to repeated use.
