Polyurethane in the furniture industry: a continuing success

Over the years, polyurethane has maintained a constant attractiveness and enduring success in the furnishing sector, thanks to the qualities and multiple characteristics that enable considerable technical and aesthetic advantages to be gained from its use. This plastic material makes it possible to:

  • create various complex shapes and make both large and small elements,
  • produce lightweight items and objects with an attractive design, even with undercut parts,
  • apply a variety of surface finishes (glossy, matt, embossed, water transfer dipping, etc.),
  • be perfectly paintable with all types of paint
  • co-mould fastening solutions such as metal or plastic threaded inserts (lead screws, pins, snap fasteners, etc.),

These possibilities identify polyurethane as a material that is ideally suited for use in the vast and varied production of this sector.

Polyurethane and design: a perfect match 

Design and polyurethane moulding are a perfect pairing, outlining in this combination the fundamental elements that define the contemporary conception of furniture design: versatility, functionality, efficiency, originality, mass reproducibility, cost-effectiveness and resistance, all factors that are precisely at the basis of the modern vision of design and realisation of furniture and furnishing accessories. This combination, due to the peculiarities it expresses, offers numerous opportunities for innovation and experimentation and this is why many internationally renowned designers and companies in the furnishing and design sector invest in polyurethane, considering it a material capable of portraying the most creative ideas and suitable for the realisation of the most advanced projects, being light, yet capable of withstanding high stresses and pressures.
