Main activities:

• Establish the influence of the chemical nature of polyols and polyisocyanates and of the isocyanate/polyol ratio used in the synthesis of polyurethane gels in the physical, chemical, mechanical properties of the final product obtained.
• Set the effect of the incorporation of additives in the chemical formulation of polyurethane gels in their physical, chemical and mechanical final properties.
• Determine the feasibility of using polyurethane gels in the furniture industry and wood and to identify possible areas of application.

Expected Results:


• Understand the effect of the chemical formulation of polyurethane gels in their final properties.
• Development of polyurethane gels according to desired properties for a particular end use in the furniture industry.
