Polyurethane Foams

Energy conservation has become a driving force of change in commercial and residential construction. Materials are selected in part based on their renewability, their recyclability and their insulative value among other “green” attributes. As a result, sprayed polyurethane foam is slowly but surely replacing fiberglass batts in walls and ceilings.

In strategic partnership with BioBased Technologies of Fayetteville, Arkansas, a leader in soy polyols, Palmer has developed a line of mannich polyols built from Cashew Nutshell Liquid. These polyols are greener alternatives to the conventional nonylphenol types. Many times they are designed to be direct substitutes that require little to no adjustment to the formulation and spray parameters.

Palmer’s green polyols are still new, but they already find utility in:

  • Rigid PU insulation foam
  • Structural foam
  • Simulated wood

Palmer plans to continue its aggressive investment in this field and play a critical role in designing the next generation of eco-friendly buildings and homes.
