PU
Polyurethane (a.k.a. PU) are a group of polymers with great industrial importance. Polyurethanes are produced by the polyaddition of polyisocianates with polyalcohols, forming the characteristic urethane group as chain link. Its most popular end-products are flexible and rigid foams. Flexible foams are used for cushioning, upholstered furniture, and automobile seats, while rigid foams are used to produce insulation for roofs, refrigerators, and freezers.
The uses and applications of Polyurethane may vary according to its specification. The main forms of Polyurethane are fibers; coatings; elastomers; and foams.

Polyurethane Cost of Production | Q4 2023

Updated Reports Examining Polyurethane Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Polyurethane manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Polyurethane process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Polyurethane production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
