At CAMX, Bayer MaterialScience (Pittsburgh, PA, US) featured its usual full slate of products fabricated with Bayer’s latest polyurethanes. Most notable were:

  • A 3m section of a utility pole manufactured via filament winding process by RS Technologies (Calgary, Alberta, Canada). Polyurethane allows for a strong product that is much lighter than steel, making the utility poles easier to transport and erect.
  • Romeo RIM (Romeo, Mich.) produced a 2.9m by 1.8m concept agricultural. Production parts also can be robotically inmold painted to customer specifications.
  • Shipping pallets manufactured via pultrusion by RM2 (Luxembourg) are designed to replace wood with polyurethane. The polyurethane pallets are strong, durable, paintable and resistant to rot.
  • A sliding door sill frame from Inoutic (Bogen, Germany), which won the “Innovation Award for Architecture + Windows, Doors and Facades,” presented during Fensterbau 2014. The award-winning sill frame was made via pultrusion by Deceuninck North America (Monroe, Ohio), resulting in a door sill that is lightweight, strong, corrosion resistant and unlikely to transfer heat.
  • Polyurethane residential home siding panels made via the long fiber injection process offer a lightweight, strong, finely detailed and paintable alternative to other materials.
