Urethane foam finds multiple applications in the building & construction industry. Flexible and semi-rigid foams are used in paints, coatings, and adhesives, which are extensively used in construction. Rigid foams are widely used as structural and insulation foams in buildings. Insulation is the most important application of polyurethane foams in the building & construction industry.The construction sector is anticipated to lead growth prospects, which will see additional opportunities for foam insulation products bolstered by increasing construction activity.

Polyurethanes are commercially available in various forms, ranging from flexible or rigid lightweight foams to tough, stiff, and strong elastomers. This enables their use in a wide variety of consumer and industrial applications such as thermal insulation of buildings, refrigerators, household furniture, bedding, automotive seating, shoe soles and appliances.

The Indian polyurethane foam market is fast-growing for uses such as insulation for construction and refrigeration, as well as for flexible foam for car seats and two-wheeler seats. The production of flexible foam accounts for the largest share of the Indian polyurethane industry.

The global plastics industry is observing a continuous shift of production bases to low-cost Asian countries. With increasing foreign investment and rise in the number of new manufacturing establishments in the region, Asia has become the largest and the fastest growing market for plastics in the world. 

PET is a technically challenging material, and making PET preforms –and ultimately, PET bottles – is a highly competitive, quality- and productivity-driven business. The demand for packaging of food & food products has lead to the development of the plastic packaging industry in the country. Among the vast family of plastics, Polyethylene Terephthalate, popularly known as PET, is expected to grow the fastest at 11.0% annually. Majority of the PET available in India is utilized in the production of bottles. In the recent years, PET bottles have inundated the Indian market, with annual growth rate in consumption exceeding 20.0%.

When there is a huge demand anticipated in the supply of PET bottles and molds, similar thrust will be felt by PET raw material providers, manufacturers of blow mould machinery, supply chain management operators and many more.

PET preform has large demand for the manufacturing for PET bottle for food and Pharmaceutical Company. The size of the container-produced ranges from 50 ml to 150 ml which is further used for making required size blow moulded bottles. It is easily expanded by compressed air with a specific temperature and does not react with acid or alkali. PET Preform has large demand for the manufacturing of PET bottle for the food and pharmaceutical company. Current worldwide demand for PET for packaging is approx. 5.5 billion pounds. With the growing demand for carbonated soft drinks, water and edible oil, PET Preform bottles are also increasing in demand. As the benefits of PET become apparent to a greater number of manufacturers and bottlers worldwide, demand continues to grow.

PET sector in India also expects a phenomenal future. Polymer consumption by Indian plastic industry is expected to be double in next 6 years. It means that the magic figure of 20 Million metric tons can be expected by 2020.

Some fundamentals of the book are properties and applications of speciality plastics, thermoplastic polyurethanes, formation of urethane foams, flexible foams, variables in the preparation of prepolymers, procedures for the preparation of prepolymers, catalyzed prepolymer preparation, application of flexible foams, applications of rigid foams, one-stage injection stretch blow moulding, pet material and applications, injection and co-injection preform technologies, pet film and sheet, plastics as safe & hygienic medium for packaging food & food products.

The book covers processes and other required information for the manufacturing of different specialty plastics, Foams, PET and Pre form PET etc. This is very useful book for new entrepreneurs, technocrats, existing units, institutional libraries etc.
