    A complete overview of a key plastic One of the most versatile polymer materials, polyurethanes have a unique chemical nature that allows for shaping and molding to fit all sorts of consumer and industrial products - seat cushions, carpets, insulation, coatings, and refrigerators to name a few. Despite its popular uses, polyurethane science has only relatively recently achieved appreciation for the richness of its expression as a polymer family. This book provides a thorough presentation of polyurethane science, technology markets and trend analysis based on recent patents.

Despite its popular uses, polyurethane science has only relatively recently achieved appreciation for the richness of its expression as a polymer family. This book provides a thorough presentation of polyurethane science, technology markets and trend analysis based on recent patents. Although it does not provide ultimate detail (such as explicit information typically in patents), the book has a flow and continuity that allows readers to find all the background necessary to understand any other more detailed polyurethane information found elsewhere. Anyone involved in the polymer and plastics industry will find this book a key resource with features that include: * An in-depth summary of the current state of polyurethane research and knowledge * Discussion of the applications, manufacture, and markets for polyurethanes * Analytical methods, reaction mechanisms, morphology, theoretical techniques, and the selection of chain extenders * Polyurethane flexible and rigid foams, elastomers, coatings, adhesives, and medical applications * In-depth coverage of governmental regulations, non-isocyanate/non-phosgene routes to polyurethane structure, and industrial routes to environmental, health, and safety risk mitigation.

  3. Polyurethanes : properties, uses and prospects

    Hauppauge, New York : Nova Science Publisher's, Inc., 2016.

    Polyurethanes are commonly prepared from polyols, diisocyanates and chain extenders. The polyols are polyesters, polyethers or polycarbonates, while the chain extenders are low molecular weight diols or diamines. In general only a limited number of diisocyanates are used, such as toluene diisocyanate, methylene diphenyl diisocyanate (MDI), hydrogenated MDI and hexamethylene diisocyanate. The first chapter of this book examines functional polyurethanes based on blocked isocyanates. Chapter two reviews the research and the most relevant advances in the investigation of thermoplastic polyurethane elastomers, TPU, and provides a comprehensive source of information on their synthesis, structure, properties and applications. Chapter three presents a short review of some ideas employed to make polyurethanes more compatible with human body, and other biotic, or even abiotic forms of nature. Chapter four reviews the state of the art in research on shape memory polyurethane structure and its thermo-mechanical as well as mechanical properties. Chapter five reviews the use of polyurethane-coated implants for breast augmentation.
