Translucent foam: The new (day)light

Translucent Desmodur® clear offers a material breakthrough in diffuse lighting effects for rigid PU foams. These innovative, colorfast and UV stable aliphatic foam materials unlock a wide range of design possibilities thanks to diffuse lighting with natural daylight or even artificial light effects, all without sacrificing any of the traditional advantages of PU foams.

Chemical recycling of flexible foams

Driven by our Circular Economy goals and our commitment towards a more sustainable future, we have developed an innovative process for the chemical recycling of PU foam from used mattresses. This solution enables the recovery of both the polyol and the toluene diamine. The result? High-quality raw materials for the production of new polyurethane foams.

Future interaction

New world, new journeys, new possibilities

A near-global lockdown deaccelerated the world’s interconnected economies. During this time, wildlife flourished, and emissions went down. The impact for people and commerce was equally seismic: businesses took their entire brand experience online, accelerating the shift towards hybrid communications. How will the new landscape impact customer touchpoints and experiences in 2022 and beyond?

    Circular economy

    Plastics are a widely used material, but at their end of use, can become waste and trigger CO₂ emissions. Their production must shift to a more circular model where alternative raw materials, reuse and recycling are the norm. We are working with partners to develop circular economy solutions. Here’s how.
