PUs are gaining credibility in the market as they replace traditional materials in a wide range of flexible and rigid foam applications, said Gerry Podesta, senior vice president of North American Performance Materials for BASF.
He made his comments on the sidelines of the Polyurethanes Technical Conference, hosted by the Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI), a part of the American Chemistry Council (ACC).
As the PU sector grows, it is necessary that the industry communicate the value, energy efficiency and safety of PU products for construction, vehicles, comfort area and other applications, Podesta said.
The conference runs through Wednesday.
