Our Key Subjects

Polyurethane Processing

There is a wide variety of existing applications for polyurethanes. In addition to the traditional (conventional) polyurethane processing technologies, the KUZ is engaged in developing of innovative technological solutions and improvements. From material point of view, questions of material modification of PU are in the focus.
