Bayer: Polyurethane keeps home warm

Business premises and residential buildings spend more than 35 per cent of the world’s total energy. Therefore, construction and living are constantly being developed in a more environmentally friendly direction. Efficient thermal insulation and new materials in particular play a key role in attempts to reduce energy consumption.

− Of Bayer’s materials, polyurethane is an efficient insulation material, as it does not become wet, shrink, decay or develop mildew. It insulates heat and saves energy more efficiently than other insulation materials, says Tuomas Forsell, Bayer’s Public Relations Officer.

Energy-efficient insulation materials translate into major savings in energy costs over the long term. Polyurethane insulation can be used in all types of thermal insulation in floors, walls and ceilings. It is used in ordinary residential buildings, apartment buildings and office buildings. Polyurethane insulation is ideal for low-energy buildings that are heated using geothermal heat instead of district heat.
