Rigid polyurethane foam is a low-density PU system often used in fire retardant parts and insulation panels. In certain formulations, we use rigid foam for shoe sole insert components and even helmet liners. Other common applications include picture frames backing board, plant pots, tractor hoods and electronic enclosures.
About Rigid PU Foam
Poly Labs rigid polyurethane foam is generally a closed-cell style foam. It offers a wide variety of material and density options. Rigid PU products have excellent compressive strength and load bearing qualities. Additionally, it has high tensile and low elongation properties.
We’ve seen our polyurethane foam utilized for insultation, composites, automotive headliners and other interior liners, imitation woodwork, boat fill, water board fill and floatation devices.
Durable and Rigid PU for Heavy-Duty Products
Foam board insulation, also known as insulating boards, often contain a low-density formulation similar to that of Poly Labs rigid PU foam. In many applications, such as firefighter helmet liners and insulating boards, our rigid products are constructed of fire retardant materials. Our unique chemical formulas are uniform and consistent in all physical properties.
Rigid foam is also used in marine product manufacturing and in boat repair practices. Mechanics prefer to use rigid PU foam as boat fill, mostly for its closed cell capabilities, meaning it does not absorb water.
