Today it is impossible to imagine the installation of windows and doors, carrying out works related to sealing without the use of polyurethane foam. This material has already firmly entered our life and has proven itself in the construction market. With its help, they carry out installation, soundproofing, sealing and heat insulation works. Polyurethane foam is able to penetrate into the most inaccessible places and completely fill them, while it hardens independently and quickly enough, forming a strong and hard plastic. There are more ways to use polyurethane foam every day, because its unique properties and our ingenuity allow us to use this material in many repair and construction works.
When it comes to carrying out serious work, the quality of the polyurethane foam comes first: it should “stick” well to the surface and not drain from it, should be flexible, not shrink strongly and not crumble after hardening. But often the name of the manufacturing company speaks of the quality of a particular polyurethane foam. Let’s dwell on the best manufacturers of polyurethane foam on the world market and in Russia.
