GUP®-based new reinforced polyurethane materials can be used for several specific applications as elastic shoe inserts or in car seats application, among others
Because of the wide range of properties, polyurethanes are one of the most versatile and used polymeric materials. Their mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties can be tailored by the application of a wide range of polyols, isocyanates and nanofillers. Adding to the polyurethane matrix flakes of graphene contributes to the creation of new materials for a wider spectrum of industrial applications. Increased interaction between the reinforcing factor and polymeric matrix result may exhibit advantageous features of the material. Composites obtained from graphene and polyurethane may exhibit significant improvements in e.g., improving mechanical and thermal properties and conductivity.
